A Career in Montessori Education

 

The Nature of a Montessori Teaching Career

 

In the classroom, the Montessori-trained teacher prepares an environment that allows the child to explore information from the world. Montessori materials provide opportunity for independent work of the child's own choice and pace. The teacher, the link between the child and the prepared environment, observes each child and presents appropriate materials with precision. The teacher's role is multi-faceted: a material maker, interior designer, parent educator, and community advocate.

Montessori education appeals to persons who:

  • want to make a contribution towards a better society
  • want to make a difference with their life's energies
  • want to help children self-construct their minds and personalities
  • possess a zest for life, good health, and high energy levels
  • seek a lifetime of learning
  • are emotionally independent

Montessori schools range from small, one-classroom, private schools at the preschool level to large, building-wide public school programs for children from preschool through grade eight.
