NAMTA's purpose is to maintain Montessori traditions, and at the same time, to be on the cutting edge of innovative education. Accordingly, we provide the medium for study, interpretation, and improvement of Montessori education.
When the pace of life and technology affect all aspects of school community life, Montessori professionals need support for imparting the core values of grace and courtesy. Portland hosted a variation of this theme in March, 2014, and the responses were all superlatives exclaiming game-changing insight. Speakers will address the history of grace and courtesy, international standards for grace and courtesy, and specific applications for primary, elementary, and whole-school dynamics. This conference provides the foundations for creating a coherent school community and for preparing children to contribute to a kinder society.
