Elementary Classroom Assistant
Child's View Montessori School

Portland, OR



Our Montessori Program is currently seeking an assistant for our small Elementary classroom. We are looking for a kind, respectful role-model with a sense of humor, strong organizational skills, positive attitude and major ability to see the "priority in the room"...follow through is everything for us! This person will work hand-in-hand with our Elementary teacher to ensure that daily routine tasks, student follow-up work and overall cleaning standards are in place; therefore this candidate must feel comfortable taking both verbal and written direction and following through with a variety of tasks. Our property has a large play space which allows for much outdoor time that includes hiking, gardening, physical education and general exploring, so candidates should be prepared to spend time outside each day.

Our ideal person would be comfortable providing in-person academic support and care for children ages 6-9 years. With current Covid-19 guidelines for care, this candidate would also be required to follow daily cleaning guidelines as put forth by the Early Learning Division and Oregon Health Authority and be fully vaccinated.

This position currently is full time and offers a competitive benefits package consisting of health, dental and vision insurance, paid sick, personal and vacation time, paid professional development training as well as the little perks in life that help us along the way, like chocolate, coffee and treats.

We are looking for someone with a genuine positive attitude. Our staff community is comprised of adults with strong worth ethics, a willingness to go above and beyond, as well as a drive for equitable outcomes for all of our students; those with a growth mindset typically fit in well.

If you are interested in a growth opportunity, have strong communications skills with children and colleagues, love to work collaboratively with adults and children, and want to support education through a dynamic time in history, then this may be a positive fit!



If, and only if, you meet the above requirements, please feel free to email your cover letter and resume to stacey@childsview.org. We are looking forward to welcoming you into our community!
