Perched on the edge of Hamilton Park in vibrant downtown Jersey City, Hamilton Park Montessori School is a thriving community of diverse and engaged learners at every level: students, families and faculty. Established in 2006, HPMS serves 340 students infant to 8th grade. Located close to both Pavonia-Newport and Grove Street PATH stations, the Light Rail and the Holland Tunnel, we are easily connected to all the gifts of the Garden State and the New York metro area.
Our Upper school Math and Science Teacher will specialize in making math/science vibrant, fun and relevant for our students in grades 4-8 in both theory and practical application. Candidates will be skilled in teaching math and science curriculum to students across all levels of ability and interest, through an interdisciplinary, inquiry-rich & project-based approach, with experience in a Montessori environment a plus.
Candidates should be excited to work collaboratively with co-teachers across all subject areas, ready to stretch beyond their comfort zones to create meaningful, contextual work within our unit themes.
Candidates will coordinate with the Upper School team and Middle School coordinator, school social worker, learning specialist and any public or private therapists involved in supporting students as they take on the challenges of academic and personal learning in adolescence.
