Violeta Montessori School in Cambridge, MA seeks an entrepreneurial experienced bilingual (Spanish/English) AMI-trained primary teacher to be its Spanish-speaking teacher leader. You and the English-speaking teacher leader will energize all aspects of the one-room school that serves 20 children, from teaching in the classroom to managing day-to-day operations.

Schools in the Network draw on tools and resources from the Wild ower Foundation.
Violeta Montessori School
Violeta Montessori School, founded in 2015, is a bilingual Spanish/English full immersion non-pro t lab microschool serving children 2.9 - 6 years of age. We have handcrafted a beautiful, peaceful learning environment that supports children, teachers, and families as they follow life’s unfolding journey. Violeta is a unique classroom of researchers, learners, and educators: through our huge shopfront-windows natural sunlight casts rainbows across our muraled walls and gorgeous planters, Violeta fosters growth in our joyful bilingual Montessori environment. Violeta aims to create the highest quality educational opportunities available to families with limited economic means, to strengthen families through parent education, to build community across racial and socioeconomic lines, and to shift public perception about the value of small schools, Montessori environments, and early childhood education. Embedded within this beautiful diversity are 9 Principles that unite Violeta and all our Wild ower schools.
