teacher

The adult who works with children in a Montessori environment is so much more than in teacher in the conventional sense.

Maria Montessori spoke of the "Spiritual Development" of the adult who wishes to work with children. By this she meant that a special preparation is necessary in addition to learning the skills of presenting material and explaining concepts.

In this section you will find information on Becoming a Montessori Teacher as well as contact details for Montessori Training Programs around the world.

Montessori Integrative Learning

New Matriculation Date: September 2011

TIES program of study in Montessori Integrative Learning contextualizes Montessori through the lens of meeting the urgent ecological, social and sustainability issues of the current times. Since 1996 we have created Montessori learning environments for adult students focusing on their professional development and intellectual curiosity. All of this is attended to on an interactive eCampus that focuses on the development of a community of learners.

Program options include focused studies for experienced Montessori professionals or Heads of School; and, for aspiring teachers, teaching and learning with children from six to twelve years.

With the steady growth in the number and enrollment of Montessori schools around the world, certified Montessori teachers are in great demand.

Montessori is not simply a method of teaching children to read; it is a philosophy of life!

Montessori teachers come from a wide range of backgrounds. In many countries a four-year college degree is a requirement to teacher at a private or public school at all age levels; however, except for areas where even private school teachers are required to hold a recognized teaching credential, it is not necessary for prospective teachers to have first graduated with a degree in education. Many Montessori teachers studied another field first. Some states allow teachers of "preschool" children to teach without the requirement of a college degree. Because these requirements vary from one place to another, prospective teachers need to check with either local schools or the state department of education to determine what the requirements are where they would like to teach.
