Testimonials for NAMC's Montessori Upper Elementary Diploma Program

As children in this age group continue their Montessori journey, they are inherently equipped with the right tools; Montessori educators need to give them the environment, resources, and guidance to excel. The NAMC 9–12 program prepares educators to provide a worldly, inspiring curriculum. The sky is the limit…or is it? Learn more about what our 9–12 students and graduates have to say about their NAMC experience.

I have spoken enthusiastically to a lot of people in different parts of the world about NAMC’s programs and how much I have enjoyed them. The manuals are very well written and informative. If I was not already an advocate for the Montessori method, NAMC’s programs certainly would have converted me. After listening to my enthusiastic review of your program and how strongly it has affected me, the Montessori school in New Hampshire that my granddaughter is attending has offered for me to teach at their school anytime I wish. I have always loved education and during my time as a student in your program, I was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Education due to my strong support of education. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience.

I loved the whole experience with NAMC! My superintendent, who is a huge proponent of Montessori education, suggested I look into getting trained as a Montessori teacher for our new Montessori Charter School. I looked at many, many options. Living in northern, and very rural, Wisconsin there are no training centers close to me. That was a big issue due to the fact that I in no way could, in good conscience, leave my family for weeks and weeks at a time to do the traditional on-site training. Then I found NAMC — it was the perfect format for our needs. The training I received from NAMC made me feel very confident that I was going to be able to implement the methods and materials as I had seen in the classrooms I visited. The way the training was done made it possible to effectively learn the methods and materials, while still being able to work and take care of my everyday life responsibilities. I can confidently talk with other Montessori teachers from around the nation and I have never felt as though I missed out on something in my training. My mentor was fantastic, extremely helpful, and incredibly insightful. It's clear the people at NAMC want you to succeed and have a successful classroom. I thank NAMC, and my superintendent, for rejuvenating my teaching career.

I found my Upper Elementary training very valuable and interesting, and the contents of the manuals are truly astonishing. I thought it was wonderful how the manuals guide the Montessori teacher through so many different concepts and activities, following the Montessori method, pedagogy, and philosophy. The entire program was very interesting, well organized, and extremely useful. I also found the NAMC team very supportive, and I appreciated my tutor’s dedication, enthusiasm, and support!
