Hilltop Montessori School teachers understand and promote the school’s mission, vision, objectives, and policies both within and outside the immediate school community. Teachers are responsible for providing a Montessori classroom/instructional program that supports the development of the cognitive, emotional, social, physical, and spiritual growth of the child in accordance with the school’s mission and vision and the child’s developmental stage.

We also ask that teachers have experience with equity, anti-bias, and teaching in an equitable and culturally affirming way and have experience working with children having a wide range of social, emotional, and behavioral experiences.

This portion of the physical education program at Hilltop Montessori School is a holistic program offered to students from 1st – 8th grade. It is a balance between developing individual skills and learning to work as part of a team/group.

The physical education teacher must be able to work with a wide variety of ages and talents and be able to balance high expectations with kindness and humor.
The PE teacher must have an understanding of the physical developmental stages of pre-school-middle school age children and will implement an appropriate curriculum for each age group. The PE teacher will keep a record of the progress of each student and communicate progress to the classroom teachers. Written student evaluations are required twice a year.
In non-COVID years, additional responsibilities often include after-school coaching of soccer, basketball, and ultimate Frisbee; scheduling team games afterschool with other schools, and organizing and supervising the winter sports program (including chaperones for ice skating, cross-country skiing, and downhill skiing and snowboarding).

We also ask that candidates have experience with equity, anti-bias, and teaching in an equitable and culturally affirming way and have experience working with children having a wide range of social, emotional, and behavioral experiences.
