About Salem Montessori: Advancing Dr. Montessori’s vision is the heart of Salem Montessori School’s mission. Our Montessori trained administrative team and dedicated teachers create an environment that aligns with the Montessori pedagogy and a school culture that is supportive, inclusive and joyful. Salem Montessori School teachers work collaboratively to nurture and inspire our children. All of our teachers attend regularly scheduled meetings and school events.

Salem Montessori School began almost 25 years ago when founder Julie Smith wanted to create a Montessori learning environment for her children in partnership with other interested parents. From modest beginnings in Julie’s home basement in 1998, to church buildings, and a children’s museum in between, Salem Montessori School opened a new, purpose built space in the fall of 2023. From one classroom, Salem Montessori School has grown to offer three toddler classrooms, two children’s house classrooms, a kindergarten classroom, two lower elementary classrooms and one upper elementary classroom.

We are looking for Part time Substitute Teachers for the 2024-2025 school year.

Salem Montessori School substitute teachers are an essential part of our community. Former teachers, parents and grandparents often choose to be a substitute teacher. Substituting is also a wonderful way to see if you are interested in teaching in a Montessori environment.

Substitute teachers assist in a classroom with a lead teacher. Substitutes attend a training session and have the support of the lead teacher and the SMS admin team. Substitutes are paid an hourly rate.
