The International Montessori School of Beijing (MSB) is seeking candidates from Clarkson’s Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program to serve as classroom teachers.
MSB and Clarkson’s MAT program have enjoyed a years’ long relationship which has culminated with the Si Wai Fellowship program. Si Wai fully supports one to two MAT candidates annually who are interested in teaching at MSB for a minimum of two years after graduation. This Fellowship offers an exciting opportunity to launch an international teaching career at a highly reputed school or experience the excitement of teaching abroad before returning for a New York teaching career.
This English-speaking school, which was founded in 1990, educates more than 400 students (preschool through grade seven) from 21 different countries. Teachers do not need to speak Chinese to be considered for the fellowship.
MSB’s new middle and planned high school curriculum is based on New York state learning standards. The school also integrates Montessori principles, such as student-directed teaching and self-regulated learning, into the New York state curriculum.
MSB has already hired one MAT alumni and plans to hire one to two teachers each year as they build their middle and high school.
