About Montessori

What to Expect

As a student teacher enrolled in the Mid-America Montessori Teachers Training Institute, you will be teamed with an experienced Montessori teacher in an approved classroom site. You’ll learn to build trusting relationships with children and to create environments which present a rich array of interactive experiences. Most importantly, you’ll learn strategies to support and facilitate each child’s development during those special wonder years.

What to Expect

Our teachers are helping to develop autonomous, competent, caring, responsible individuals, not merely children with the “right” answers. In our schools, Dr. Montessori’s developmentally appropriate approach is designed to fit each child, instead of making each child fit the program. As a Montessori teacher, you will foster the maximum development of each child’s abilities. You will set the stage and serve as a multi-faceted resource person. The children will do the rest.
