Dear NAMTA Colleagues,

Although NAMTA will complete its final membership year at the end of this July, we will continue to provide membership benefits through October, 2019.

Over the next few months, we will be presenting the popular Baltimore conference "Montessori: Learning for All" on Oct. 11-12, 2019. You can still count on us to supply service to the Montessori archives, produce a final NAMTA journal, accept and post job listings, and orders are still being filled through our online store.
