Where schools and teachers connect.

Find a job. Find staff.

Welcome to Montessori Match!

We help Montessori schools and teachers find each other and make a perfect match.

As a group of former teachers and administrators, we know how much it matters that teachers and schools are a good fit for one another. We know that low teacher turnover and high teacher happiness lead to thriving schools with engaged learners.

We want to see every Montessori teacher in a school that feels like “home” and every Montessori school buzzing with collaboration and community. Let us help you find the perfect match!

How It Works

Make a Profile
Fill out a Montessori-specific cultural profile, created by leaders in the Montessori community.
Get Connected
We show you members who share your priorities. You tell us which ones you'd like to connect with.
Chat
When a school and an educator both show interest in each other, we connect you so you can move forward in the hiring process.
School Profiles

Schools build a profile for a specific head guide position in your school. For example, you might be looking for a new Primary guide. In that case, build a profile for the ideal individual you want to see in that position.

What kind of personality traits and characteristics do you desire? What type of Montessori teacher training do you want them to have? Do you want them to have a college education?

Your profile will also include some basic information about your school. We need to know what kind of community your school is in and what your organizational structure is so that we will only match you with teachers who want to work in a school like yours.

When you use Montessori Match, you establish an immediate filter for unconscious bias in your first round of hiring. We make the match based solely on credentials and characteristics, and you get the very best candidates filtered to the top for you!

Teacher Profiles

Teachers, when you build a profile, you are telling us all about YOU and what makes you an amazing educator!

We want to know about your formal education but we also want to know about the individual characteristics that make you an asset in the classroom. Do you love tech or a trusty blackboard with chalk? Or both?

We will also ask you about the type of school you want to work in and the sorts of communities you want to live in. Do you prefer year round, or summers off? That way, we can help you find a school that will be your career “home!”

Remember, the more options you choose for location and school structure, the more potential matches we can make for you!

When you use Montessori Match, you are able to find your perfect fit, both for the location and size, but also for your personality and your values!

Equitable Hiring
When you fill out your profile, you may wonder why we hide your name from others, and why you picked a puzzle piece for your picture. When you fill out a profile on Montessori Match, we hide a lot of identifying information about you. Many studies have shown that we have unconscious bias as employers and employees that keep us from hiring the right people and choosing the best places to work. Once a school and educator are connected, you can share your real information with each other, and by that time you'll both have already made a conscious commitment to the hiring process, without your biases.
Making a Match

After you have built a profile our unique matchmaking algorithm will get to work finding your just-right matches. You will get a notification when a match is made with the chance to learn more. If you are interested in getting in contact, you let us know and we make the introductions!

After you are introduced to your matches, the rest of the process is up to you. We make sure you get matches that are at least 75% positive alignment with your profile. From there, you do the interviews and decide if you are truly right for each other.

Your school is a special place and your community deserves to have the best teachers out there. Teachers that have the skills and characteristics your unique school needs. We know that when teachers work in schools in which they thrive, the children flourish.

Teaching is so rewarding. It can also be hard, especially if you’re teaching in a school with a culture, location, or administration that doesn’t work for you. We know that when teachers work in schools in which they thrive, the children flourish.
