NAMTA Conferences and Professional Development Opportunities


The NAMTA conference series provides an opportunity for Montessori practitioners to deepen their understanding of Montessori practice from birth through adolescence. Speakers include Montessori trainers, contemporary authors, scholars, and researchers who present the continuum of Montessori’s living tradition.


In addition to conferences NAMTA offers professional development opportunities. The NAMTA/AMI Montessori Orientation to Adolescent Studies provides a variety of implementation models for teachers who wish to know more about adolescents, their needs and psychological characteristics, as well as Montessori principles and authentic practices. Since November 2010, The Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) has recognized this program as the current AMI adolescent pedagogical offering.


Montessori Whole-School ManagementSM is for both Montessori teachers without administrative background and administrators without Montessori background. Each program track allows time for discussion, problem solving, and creation of a specific plan for each participant's school.


Event announcements, including materials, are mailed approximately four to six weeks prior to each conference. Online usually begins about four to six weeks prior to the conference; check for full conference schedules and materials. To be included on the mailing list, contact NAMTA with your name, address, and the conference in which you are interested.
