The Montessori School of Camden  – 2 Montessori Way  – Camden, SC 29020   – Phone: 803-432-6828

The Montessori School of Camden (MSC) seeks a qualified candidate to teach elementary students.

Qualifications: The ideal candidate should hold or be eligible for a current South Carolina  teaching certificate, be a dedicated team player, enthusiastic, and have strong classroom management and communication skills. The candidate must be self-motivated, positive, and flexible, compassionate, well-organized, passionate about Montessori Philosophy, and participate enthusiastically in school community activities. The successful candidate should love working with children and possess a warm and collaborative personality. Our teachers are expected to communicate with parents and each other on a regular basis. Preference will be given to candidates holding a Montessori elementary credential from a MACTE-accredited institution. Two years’ experience as a lead teacher is preferred. 

The School: Founded in 1979 as a Montessori preschool program in a traditional private school, in 1985 MSC became an independent 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, governed by a Board of Trustees and led by a Head of School. In 2018 it converted to a public charter school. In 2017 the school was accredited by Montessori Educational Programs International (MEPI) and is the only school in the state accredited by a Montessori professional society. Beginning in July of 2019 the school will consist of a teaching faculty of 11, 120 students, and four levels from Primary through Middle School as well as an after-school program, located on an 11-acre campus in a charming Southern town. MSC operates a 180-day school year in four equal quarters spaced evenly across the calendar year, and offers “intersession” special programs in between. The school plans to expand further until it consists of 14 classrooms and 280 students. We value socio-economic, racial and cultural diversity and enjoy a supportive parent body. Our programs are creating independent and confident learners who are excited about their future.

Visit the school’s web site at www.montessori-camden.com and Facebook page for more information.

As the school continues to grow to meet the needs of its students and our surrounding community, faculty and team members are continually consulted for input on improvements and program changes and encouraged to grow professionally by obtaining additional certifications.  Experienced educators are the backbone of our success. MSC offers a real career opportunity for the right candidate.

Benefits: The benefit package includes a competitive salary based on experience, certification, and education level, healthcare, paid personal days, and a stipend to enhance your professional skills. Financial support is available for a Montessori certification course. Additionally, faculty children have preferred access to the lottery.
