What We Stand For
AMS is empowering humanity to build a better world through Montessori. As the foremost advocate for quality Montessori education, we believe in pushing the needle forward when it comes to research and policy, teacher education, and standards of accreditation through mentored individual growth, collaboration, and member engagement.
Who We Are
We are educators, researchers, writers, editors, marketers, fundraisers, administrators, web strategists, and other professionals united by a shared mission. Team members have hailed from China, Delaware, France, Greece, Jamaica, Mississippi, New York, Ohio, and everywhere in between. We speak Greek (no—really!), Italian, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, and English—among a diversity of other languages. We’re proudly headquartered in New York City—America’s melting pot.
What You Can Expect
At AMS, we work hard. We care about doing a superb job; you can feel the collaborative energy just by stepping foot into our office headquarters. We are passionate about Montessori and our organization as a whole. Our white boards are colorful and desks are brimful. There is an office buzz that never dulls.
But we’ve also been known to throw a good party. When you’re part of the team, you can expect celebratory occasions on a regular basis.
- Office outings
- Summer field trips
- Paid volunteer time
- Holiday festivities
- Themed potlucks
- Birthday parties – duh!
- Sponsored coffee chats
… and so much more!
What We Are Looking For
We’ll be spending lots of time together, so we want to make sure it’s a fit. Do you care about constantly improving? Do you spend the time it takes to answer difficult questions? Are you creative, a team-player, passionate, and kind? Do you have a sense of humor?
We want teammates who are willing to roll up their sleeves alongside us, and hit the ground running on day one.
