“The Montessori technique of teaching has changed my way of learning and my way of looking at everything! I’m very happy to be in it.” Read More
Montessori training is intensive and imparts an attitude as well as information. The training includes Montessori child psychology, educational theory, material demonstrations, supervised practice with montessori apparatus, observation of Montessori classrooms, supervised practice teaching, and extensive written and oral exams. Our teachers have all been trained through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).
Montessori training is recognized by selected colleges and universities at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. Generally the academic phases require either three summers plus an additional two months or one full academic year to complete. Many districts send existing faculty for Montessori training. The SE Alaska Friends of Montessori has provided training scholarships to many of our teachers.
