Music Teacher (Toledo)

West Side Montessori, Toledo Campus, has an opening for a general music teacher for first through eighth grade and fifth through eighth grade band teacher beginning August 2023.
Would you enjoy working in an environment where your students are self-motivated, enjoy learning, and appreciate new experiences? What about hosting your students’ concerts outside on our large, beautiful grounds? Could you see yourself using the one-to-one iPad-to-student ratio in fourth through eighth grade to teach your general music class? Would you appreciate having a music room that has a collection of band instruments to direct a 5th through 8th grade band, a full set of Orff instruments, boom-whackers, and a Smart Board to teach a general music class? Do you wish to have a supportive environment where administration and parents support your needs and ideas and want the best for their students? If so, we’d like to hear from you!
