Acton Academy Fort Worth provides a truly unique and revolutionary “disruptive” educational model. We emphasize Socratic guidance as opposed to traditional teaching, mixed-aged classrooms with a self-paced curriculum as opposed to grade-levels, and life-oriented quests that culminate in a public exhibition of their learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. Students are empowered to be in the driver seat of their learning in an environment that is truly theirs. Moreover, our goal is to support each hero’s journey as they seek to find their calling and change the world.
Open Position — Apprentice Guide
We are seeking a full time Socratic Guide for the 2018-2019 school year. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about guiding children on their independent journey of life-long learning, and who possesses a depth, love, and commitment to Maria Montessori's methodology and materials. Montessori certification is required, preferably AMI or AMS.
Guides are expected to lead Socratic discussions each morning, inspire our heroes to explore, be curious, and take ownership of their learning, monitor student progress on our self-paced curriculum, and create life-oriented projects that nurture student curiosity and culminate in public exhibitions for the community.
Our guides serve as the pillars of our learning environment and receive competitive pay, commensurate with experience.
