Grazia Silvana! Montessori Assistants to Infancy
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.
In the United States, a private-school elementary Montessori teacher with a bachelor's degree would expect a starting salary for a full-day, nine-month year of $25,000 to $30,000. Primary (preschool) teachers with no previous experience usually start at $21,000-$24,000. Teachers eligible for public-school Montessori teaching (usually requiring state teacher certification in addition to the Montessori diploma) would expect a salary beginning at $29,000-$31,000. Salaries vary from region to region and depend on the background of the teacher.
Opportunities for advancement include promotion to head teacher (a classroom teacher who functions as curriculum director), educational consulting, and teacher training. A person choosing a career as a Montessori administrator, principal, or headmaster would expect to earn from $45,000 in a school of under 200 children to as high as $80,000-$100,000 in a larger school.
