Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM

NAMTA Montessori Whole-School Management 

A Professional Development Workshop for Teachers and Administrators, featuring NAMTA Speakers

Individuals will have the opportunity to choose among all four tracks presented by experienced administrators.

 

 

Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM draws on NAMTA’s wealth of administrative knowledge developed through its publications and programming. This course is for both Montessori teachers without administrative background and administrators without Montessori background. It provides a deep orientation to the unique demands of Montessori administration. NAMTA offers Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM as a new way to find a professional match in administrator professional development. 

 

This course is for Montessori administrators who are looking for guiding Montessori principles in their work, and for teachers who are beginning an administrative career in Montessori.

 

The program gives previous NAMTA Whole School Management participants a completely new learning experience that allows for specialization and individual selections of a variety designs presented in four different tracks. At the same time, this program offers professional development to both Montessori teachers without administrative background and administrators without Montessori background.

 

Since 1988, NAMTA has documented best administrative practices and provided professional development to beginning administrators with one overarching principle in mind: Montessori schools, in order to retain their authenticity over time, need Montessori-oriented administrators who understand the specific operational aspects of Montessori pedagogy.

 
The increasing complexity of Montessori school structure means that the Montessori school must reintegrate its parts to complete the developmental continuum. This is an extraordinary endeavor as the Montessori school must embody the Montessori vision of successive prepared environments, indoors and outdoors, encompassing the natural and human-built worlds through all academic disciplines from concrete to abstract, from eighteen months to eighteen years. The more comprehensive the Montessori vision, the more complicated the institution and the larger and more diverse the staff. There is also more difficulty in staying organic and remaining focused on the organic whole, which is simply children and their intrinsic needs in contact with the appropriate “prepared environment,” including the natural environment. The implementation of Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM requires not just administration but visionary leadership, which is as much a test of character as it is of knowledge.
