Careers

Thinking about joining our team?

All résumés are currently being accepted and placed into a pool for future positions that become available. Salaries and benefits are very competitive with the Polk County School District as we adopt the PCSB salary schedules. Current Polk County employees are not required to resign from the school district’s employment.

All Montessori lead teaching applicants, as well as music and art teachers, for grades Kindergarten and up must have at least a bachelor’s degree.

For Montessori lead teaching positions, teachers will either possess a MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education) approved Montessori certification credential for the age level (Primary: preK-3, preK-4 and kindergarten, Elementary I: first, second and third grades, or Elementary II: fourth, fifth and sixth grades) they will be teaching; or if a teacher does not already hold certification, Magnolia Montessori Academy will arrange for training to begin the summer before employment through a MACTE approved Montessori teacher training program.

Teachers possessing a professional Florida state teaching license and/or a Montessori credential will be given preference.

Please feel free to send your cover letter (including your philosophy of education), résumé, a copy of your Montessori diploma, and a copy of your Bachelor’s Degree by mail or email.
