I have been a Montessori teacher for 27 years and it is still an exciting job. I can't imagine teaching any other way. Working with children, I believe, is a blessing and a great responsibility.
I received my training at the Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center. I am certified to teach 6-12 year olds by the American Montessori Society. I am also a member of the International Montessori Council.
