Shara Gurule

Experienced AMS Montessori Directress

It is with considerable interest that I enclose my resume for any open positions available currently or prospectively in the 2017 Spring or Fall semesters.  I am confident you will find that my unwavering commitment to Montessori education, unique ability to connect with children, strong classroom management, organizational and interpersonal skills will be a positive asset to your school.

As a well-rounded Montessorian, I have had the opportunity to teach in different settings and positions.  I started out interning at a Montessori in Las Cruces, NM where I learned how to incorporate Spanish into the primary age curriculum. I was honored to teach at one of the oldest Montessori schools in New Mexico, Escuela del Sol Montessori in Albuquerque.  I then took on the endeavor to establish, own and operate my own Montessori school in the beautiful pines of Ruidoso, NM.  Fueled by a desire to gain greater knowledge and experience with children with special needs, I worked with a government-funded Head Start program.  Then, when a call came to oversee and help establish a new and fast-growing Montessori school in the Phoenix Valley, I was very excited to take on the challenge.  In my 4.5 years of Primary Directorship, Spondeo Montessori has grown over 35% to full capacity and a solid waiting list!

I have to itch to continue in my passion to guide and connect with children, to cultivate warm, stimulating, peaceful environments and to build strong, working, relationships with all members of your school community.  I have over 16 years of experience in teaching and many of those years I have combined different facets of operations and responsibilities. My family has much experience teaching abroad, my brother is currently teaching in China. Now, I am ready to start my adventure in teaching abroad and your school not only stands out but resonates with me. I would absolutely love the opportunity to be a part of your community!
