Located in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, DC, Aidan Montessori School seeks a Learning Support Specialist for Literacy. Aidan is an independent school serving approximately 150-200 children from the age of 18 months to 12 years old, and is the gold standard for Montessori education in the Greater Washington DC area. 

The Learning Support Specialist for Literacy will focus on serving elementary-aged students in grades 1-6, plus 4-6 year old emerging readers in our Primary Program. The right candidate will have reading and literacy training from a program like Orton Gillingham or similar. They will understand how to build a reading recovery program, conduct running records, have experience working with elementary students who are learning to write, and generally be flexible about the type of support needed and provided.

In addition to providing support with a team that provides a small number of students onsite tutoring in math, reading and language, this position works with teachers, parents, and administrators to identify children who might need additional support for their learning style and helps families access that support by connecting them with resources.  

This position also works with teachers to understand how to incorporate accommodations in their classrooms and helps the community of teachers to stay informed regarding students and their challenges.  

A background in tutoring elementary-aged children and/or a degree in Special Education is preferred. Being a self-starter who is self-directed and able to prioritize and organize is essential. This position will involve in-person learning, as well as Distance Learning support. Flexibility in working from on-site and off-site, and an understanding of technology like Zoom for meetings and Google Classroom is a plus.
