Building Partnerships in Support of the Child, Teacher, and Parents

Building Partnerships in Support of the Child, Teacher, and Parents

 October 11-14, 2018


Sheraton Columbia Town Center, Columbia, MD

The key partnerships that prepare Montessori teachers and schools to support children and families are developed from the relationships within an entire school community. In this conference we will explore the many ways administrators, teachers, and parents support each other to build strength in a school. We will also discuss the ways to develop the best of ourselves and learn to convey the passion we carry for our work in effective ways.

This conference is the first in a series of special AMI conferences being presented by four AMI affiliates: AMI/USA, NAMTA, MAA, and EAA. 

Membership tuition rates apply to any individual who is a current member of any one of the four affiliate organizations.

Reserve your room at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center by September 18, 2018 to receive the special NAMTA rate of $126 (lodge) or $144 (tower). Call 1-888-627-8318 and state that you are reserving under the NAMTA room block.

All ad requests will also be addressed post-conference.

Store order fulfillment will also be delayed as we set up our new store. We anticipate our store re-opening in December. If you have submitted an order in the past two weeks, that you need right away, please contact us for a refund. If you are able to wait until December, we would be happy to send your order at that time. We understand that this is a less than ideal situation and apologize for the inconvenience.
