Why Work at Guidepost?
Because we're on a mission to dramatically increase the accessibility of Montessori education to children around the world. Whether you are a trained Montessorian with a lifetime of experience or you're just getting started, we want to hear from you.
Trained as a lawyer, Anita Omajafor discovered Montessori the way many of us have: by following her passions.
“I don’t have words to describe the absolute joy it gives me to be a part of this team. The beautiful and welcoming campus, the lovely and diverse families and the fantastic staff family here. I could not ask for a better school environment to call home.” — Anita Omajafor, Children's House Guide at Guidepost Montessori at Flower Mound
A few years ago, Tomeka Bostic was a mother looking for a good school for her “visual, hands-on” son. But when she discovered the independent, holistic approach to learning at Guidepost Montessori, she felt compelled to not only enroll her son, but to join the staff herself and help other parents seeking a better learning experience for their children.
“I worked in long-term healthcare for many years. I was always setting goals for the patients, and so I look at this job as just helping families to meet their goals with providing a quality, Montessori education for their child. I'm so grateful to be a part of all this!” — Tomeka Bostic, Assistant Head of School at Guidepost Lake Norman
