LEARN ABOUT US
We encourage you to begin with watching our philosophy videos and read For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. This will provide you with insight into the values of Ambleside School of Marion and highlight fundamental principles of education at Ambleside, namely, that children are persons and the tools for their education are the atmosphere of the classroom, the formation of habits, and the inspiration of ideas.
If your application indicates that Ambleside may be a good fit for you, we will begin our interview process. Our hiring process includes the following steps:
Classroom Observation & Professional Assessments
Training: If hired, new teachers are expected to attend a week long training in July with Ambleside Schools International.
GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF AN AMBLESIDE TEACHER
Ambleside teachers have an active, personal faith in Jesus Christ along with a desire to live out their faith by investing in young children and families through education. They are lifelong learners. Ambleside teachers sense a calling to help children grow academically, spiritually, and in character. They are interested in doing the hard work personally and professionally. They are able to lead young people with authority and respect, insight and courage, love and inspiration. They are committed to Jesus’ principles of relationship with God and others through practice and prayer.
Recognizing that Ambleside School exists for the purpose of implementing the method of Charlotte Mason, Ambleside teachers willingly practice our educational philosophy as practiced by our schools affiliated with Ambleside Schools International. Besides the core subjects of Bible, math, literature, history and science, teachers at Ambleside instruct in many other areas of study, 12- 16 subjects a week. Our curriculum uses few textbooks. Teachers are trained in our philosophy at a week long Summer Institute and through frequent observations in the classroom.
If you have a love and loyalty for Christ, the capacity to connect with and influence children. If you delight in learning, reading, and studying, and if you are developing a passion for Charlotte Mason’s philosophy, we would love to hear from you!
