Position: Part-time Elementary School Guide with quick potential for growth
Start Date: November 30, 2020
If your passion is to fuel the love of learning in others while advancing your own personal and professional growth, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor of one of the world’s most innovative schools.
Acton Academy NH, founded in 2019, is a private micro-school and learner-driven community with the mission that each person who enters its doors will find a calling and change the world. The Acton Academy network started in 2009 and there are now more than 250 schools world-wide. We combine elements of the Montessori method with Socratic guiding, hands-on experiential quests and interactive technology. Underlying our method is an application of the Hero’s Journey creating a lively learning environment that feels more like an adventure than school.
At Acton, we have mixed-aged classrooms called studios with a self-paced learning design as opposed to grade-levels. Our real world-oriented quests culminate in a public exhibition of learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. In all areas of Acton life, our students are empowered to be in the driver’s seat of their learning.
We are seeking a part time Elementary School Guide to work with our elementary school Eagles. This Guide position has the potential to grow into a full-time position in August.
We are looking for a smart, entrepreneurial individual who is passionate about guiding children on their independent journey of lifelong learning, and who possesses an understanding of the Hero’s Journey and the Socratic Method.
Our Guides learn to lead Socratic discussions and how to work with the Acton Academy learning design, processes and systems.
Our Guides equip our Eagles to explore and take ownership of their learning, monitor progress on Montessori curriculum, and create life-oriented projects that nurture curiosity.
If interested, as your first step in this process, please read deeply through our website.
