International Montessori School; Durham, NC; Primary Guide Opening (Mandarin Chinese immersion)

International Montessori School is a non-profit, independent school located in Durham, North Carolina approximately 10 minutes south of Duke University and fifteen minutes north of the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. IMS is a wonderful, diverse environment where teachers and families of many cultures, languages, and backgrounds come together in a supportive and engaging community. Our school provides full immersion programs in Spanish, French, and Mandarin Chinese for approximately 130 students from 3 to 12 years old. We also have a toddler program in English. Most of our students come from English-speaking homes, but their parents have chosen IMS because they value being bilingual in todays society. About 30% of our families come from homes where at least one parent speaks the target language either natively or relatively fluently.

Our ideal candidates have a passion for guiding young people, are lifelong learners, are creative, and thrive in a collaborative, international culture. In addition, our ideal candidates have experience in a language immersion or dual language program.

Minimum Qualifications for All Positions:

Native or near native fluency in the immersion language of the classroom

Excellent communication skills in both written and spoken English and the immersion language of the classroom, interacting with others with compassion, confidence, and empathy

Strong organization, technology, and problem-solving skills

Willingness to participate in overnight field trips (post-pandemic) for elementary positions

Ability to work collaboratively in a co-teaching setting

Montessori certification at the level of the classroom from a MACTE-accredited program and a Bachelors degree or international equivalent

Three years of experience as a Montessori guide

Existing US work authorization and no future sponsorship required

A competitive salary and health, vision, and dental benefits are available.

IMS, an equal opportunity employer, seeks to support a diverse staff to reflect the diverse community of parents and students. Our current student body is 7% African-American or Black, 13% Asian, 46% Caucasian, 1% American Indian and 24% Multi-ethnic/Multi-racial.

All interested candidates should apply by sending a cover letter and a current resume/CV to Angela Bailey, Head of School at In your cover letter, be sure to address why you enjoy working with children this age, why you are interested in working at IMS, and your perspective on the benefits of a Montessori and language immersion education to young students.
