Building Partnerships in Support of the Child, Teacher, and Parents

Building Partnerships in Support of the Child, Teacher, and Parents

 October 11-14, 2018


Sheraton Columbia Town Center, Columbia, MD

The key partnerships that prepare Montessori teachers and schools to support children and families are developed from the relationships within an entire school community. In this conference we will explore the many ways administrators, teachers, and parents support each other to build strength in a school. We will also discuss the ways to develop the best of ourselves and learn to convey the passion we carry for our work in effective ways.

This conference is the first in a series of special AMI conferences being presented by four AMI affiliates: AMI/USA, NAMTA, MAA, and EAA. 

Membership tuition rates apply to any individual who is a current member of any one of the four affiliate organizations.

Reserve your room at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center by September 18, 2018 to receive the special NAMTA rate of $126 (lodge) or $144 (tower). Call 1-888-627-8318 and state that you are reserving under the NAMTA room block.

Welcome back and thank you for you patience as we have been transitioning to new locations, beginning new work with new staff, and refreshing our processes.

Our online store and archives have successfully moved into a new space where all of our publications and media, both for sale and for research via the archives, are housed in one large office/warehouse. Along with the refreshed processes and efficiency this new space brings, we will be implementing new ordering and payment systems for the NAMTA store and updating other member services. We are now filling back orders and will be ready to accept new orders by December 11th.

Our operations are now headquartered in Seattle and are being managed by NAMTA’s longtime president Jacquie Maughan. Please feel free to contact us at or call the Seattle office at 206-919-6349.

For additional news and updates, please see the note from the NAMTA officers.

Finally, be sure to mark your calendars and plan to attend our conference in Seattle/Tacoma on April 4-7, 2019. This conference will not only explore the most current approaches and uses of technology but will also inspire and enrich our understanding of maintaining our balance with the forces that keep us rooted and connected to humanity through the power of story, the natural world, and creativity.
