About Our Teachers and Staff
Montessori School of Elkhart staff is Montessori certified, experienced, and dedicated faculty. They are teachers who are trained by certified and authentic Montessori training centers. Our staff is a community of educators who follow the teachings of Maria Montessori and the standards set by the American Montessori Society (AMS). Alongside the parents, we seek to assist the child’s ability to grow, learn, and relate to others. Our staff model respect and courtesy for our children.
Our teachers are American Montessori Society (AMS) certified with an accumulation of over 100 years of in-class experience. In most of our classrooms, both adults are certified teachers. Our staff has long and distinguished histories with our school. Many of them have taught for our school for up to as long as 34+ years. The limited turnover of staff lend to consistency for our children and families. We hold everyone to the highest professional standard and seek out faculty and staff who embrace the Montessori ideal and share an enthusiasm for continuing their own education and professional development.
As a family, Montessori School of Elkhart has a staff that supports creative, flexible, and sensitive children. The Montessori three-year curriculum allows the teachers to gain a deep knowledge of the strengths, weaknesses, and giftedness of each child to develop the person they are intended to become.
