Libertas is working with NCMPS to obtain both MACTE-accreditation (i.e. portable Montessori credential) and a state teacher certification endorsement (i.e. Tennessee teacher license) for this Institute & Residency. This Institute and Residency would be valued at between $6,000 to $10,000, but Libertas will sponsor 100% of that cost for teachers who commit to three years of service.

Description of Position
ABOUT THE POSITION & QUALIFICATIONS
Joining Barrie during an exciting time, the Barrie Montessori Head should feel a passion for implementing a Montessori program informed by leading-edge, research-based pedagogic thinking. This includes compellingly articulating and promoting continual improvements and refinements in curriculum and teaching methods to our key constituents (colleagues, current and prospective parents, administrators, and trustees). The division Head will have the opportunity to collaborate on engaging, intellectually stimulating work that will help shape the future of both the division and the school, while respecting its Montessori foundations.
Barrie seeks candidates who are experienced, credentialed Montessori educators who also embrace research-driven, innovative approaches to 21st-century learning and professional development. Both administrative and instructional leadership experience are essential, as the division Head leads an established program staffed by experienced educators as well as Montessori interns. The division Head should possess the ability to work with individual teachers to provide thoughtful guidance and feedback on teaching and to collaborate on crafting professional development. We welcome candidates with background in public and private school settings.
The division Head will work with a diverse group of administrators and teachers. Working in close partnership with the Head of School, the division head serves as a key part of the school’s administrative team. This includes being part of discussions regarding the school’s policies and strategic path, leading efforts to continually refine and improve curriculum, teaching, and learning practices across the school, managing the divisional budget and finances with the business office, working with the marketing department to promote Barrie’s unique programs, and supporting the admission office’s efforts to find and recruit prospective students. The division Head will support a campus-wide approach that requires close coordination with the Head of Barrie Prep.
In addition, the division head will collaborate closely with the Director of Barrie’s Institute for Advanced Montessori Studies, a leading credentialing program. Together, the division Head and Institute Director work as advocates for Barrie’s approach to the Montessori philosophy. This includes helping current and prospective families understand and embrace that approach, driving implementation of best practices, advocating for research-based improvements to the Montessori method, and supporting Barrie as a sought-after learning site for interns. Barrie is also a member of the American Montessori Society, so familiarity with AMS training, practices, and research is essential given the demands and requirements for full accreditation. The new division head will also support the continuation of a strong before- and after-care program.
In a diverse school community serving students age 18 months through Grade 12 encompassing a number of key constituencies, the division Head must be a team-builder, advocate, and effective oral communicator and writer. As the “face” of Barrie Montessori, he or she should be able to carefully balance building consensus with taking the initiative to lead on a variety of issues relevant to the division, the school, and the Institute

Qualifications (Minimum and Preferred)
PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NEW HEAD OF BARRIE MONTESSORI
Professionally, the new Head of Barrie Montessori will be someone who:
 Expects and supports excellence: Barrie needs to continue to be at the forefront of outstanding teaching. Barrie’s students and parents speak enthusiastically about the quality of our educational experience throughout the grades, along with our broad curricular opportunities, especially those that relate to hands-on activities. It is important that the overall curriculum across the school be coherent and well-articulated and positioned against national standards and local competition, while acknowledging the range of students’ learning differences. The new Head of Barrie Montessori will both lead and guide continued reflection and improvement of the overall Barrie program and ensure we remain fully accredited, including understanding the requirements of the state Office of Child Care. The position also recruits, supervises and evaluates faculty.
 Works well within a complex entity: Barrie is a multi-faceted institution, combining an independent school with a Montessori credentialing program and a long-established summer day camp. The division Head must be comfortable creating links between the Montessori philosophy in the lower grades with a thematic curriculum in the middle and upper grades, as well as building strong ties to the Institute and Camp.
 Can manage school finances: Like many small schools, Barrie’s finances are primarily tuition driven. The budget must be carefully constructed and thoughtfully monitored, balancing enrollment and staffing.
 Can speak compellingly to current and prospective families: Barrie’s program is not known well enough in the greater Washington, D.C. community and competition from other area schools is intense. The division head will have an active role in crafting marketing messages to promote Barrie Montessori and articulating Barrie’s mission and Montessori philosophy to current and prospective families.
 Builds bridges and stretches boundaries: Given the success of the Barrie Montessori program and the importance of the Institute for Advanced Montessori Studies, the Head of Barrie Montessori needs to understand, appreciate, and advocate for the Montessori philosophy, while embracing the best of a diverse range of other research-based practices.
 Connects our campus to the world at large: As an institution, Barrie believes in building solid and meaningful connections with the world beyond our campus, through partnerships (local, regional, and international). Further, we view our classrooms as encompassing the entirety of our 45-acre campus, indoors and out.
 Appreciates outstanding colleagues: The Head of Barrie Montessori will be committed to supporting outstanding teachers, fellow administrators, and staff. This includes commitment to teacher research and peer observation and coaching.
 Is comfortable in a diverse school: Diversity is a natural and integral part of life at Barrie, and the school values the significant degree of diversity within its student body.
 Has visionary outlook: The division Head should have a history of leading institutional growth. This will include carefully designed trials of new programs, including quick adjustments to make them successful, as well as timely termination of programs that don’t work.
 Is a skilled communicator: The division Head should be both a dynamic speaker and excellent writer.
 Is aware of safety and security issues: Barrie carefully balances an open, welcoming campus atmosphere with a continuing concern for students’ safety and security in a sometimes threatening world. We believe our greatest asset in building a safe environment is our close-knit and supportive community.
 Is comfortable with technology: Barrie is committed to appropriate use of technological tools, properly and thoughtfully integrated into the curriculum. The division Head should also be comfortable using technology to support the administrative requirements of the position.
 Enjoys being part of a team: The Head of Barrie Montessori should welcome collaboration and teamwork.
PERSONAL CHARACTERISTICS
The Head of Barrie Montessori will be someone who:
 Is accessible: The division Head must be a highly visible part of the daily life of the school, whose personality lends itself to easy, friendly, and engaging interactions. He or she should know all the students and enjoy the opportunity to spend time with them and their families.
 Is focused, organized, and goal oriented: The division Head should be able to prioritize, develop systems and procedures, and establish clear standards of accountability.
 Exhibits sound judgment, seeks input, and makes decisions in a timely fashion: The division Head values collaborative leadership, working with staff and peer administrators.
 Is energetic, self-confident, outgoing, and knowledgeable about current educational best practices.
 Maintains high standards of integrity and a sense of humor.
