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.

Happy Holidays from NAMTA!

Thank you for your patience and support during this transition to new locations for our office and our store.

We will be spending the next two weeks finalizing a new system for our store and catching up on memberships. The store will now be managed by Shopify, an online e-commerce system. It will go live and be ready for orders by January 7th.

The NAMTA staff will resume filling the orders at that time. We hope you find the new system easy to use and efficient. Please let us know if you have any difficulty.

In the meantime, we are thrilled to have the program for Seattle/Tacoma ready to announce. Please review our flier announcing this timely and important conference. We will begin registration at on January 11th.
