Position Summary:

Erdkinder Overview

Clark Montessori is seeking a teacher for our Montessori “Erdkinder” position.  The term Erdkinder (German for “earth” + “child”) was coined by Maria Montessori to capture the concept of how adolescents can learn from and with the natural world, specifically by integrating farm work with traditional core content interdisciplinary studies and work programs.  As a Cincinnati Public School, Clark’s utilizes an “Urban Erdkinder” approach which broadens Montessori’s concept to include understanding one’s place in both natural and urban systems.
