We are looking for amazing and passionate Educators to join our team!


We are looking for passionate, energetic, and joyful teachers who think outside the box to join our community of learners. Our teachers must be willing to continually grow, adapt, and change as Davidson Green School does the same. We want community members who are amazingly creative and naturally innovative, and who enjoy contributing peace and love to a community. We also look for people who are builders and creators, and who can create a vision and follow through with the implementation. All employees must have a passion for nature, be able to integrate the nature-based, "green" philosophy of Davidson Green School throughout their curriculum, and enthusiastically embrace being and teaching outdoors.

We are a child-centered alternative school that starts at 3 years old and goes through 8th grade. Our philosophy is grounded in Montessori with a particular emphasis on sustainability, nature connection, engineering, and creativity. Davidson, located in the Lake Norman area of Charlotte, is home to Davidson College, a year-round farmer’s market, and a charming downtown.
