NAMC’s training is offered in a way that made it possible for me to effectively learn the Montessori methods and materials, while still being able to work and take care of my everyday life responsibilities. 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. 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.
