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.
Montessori education is a challenging career with high rewards. The pleasant classroom environment generates constant discovery in all fields of knowledge for both the children and the teacher. Teachers grow in self-understanding as they help children develop in harmony with life. Most of all, teachers experience the fulfillment that comes from working for a better world through tomorrow's adults.
Continuing education is an important part of Montessori teaching. Workshops and conferences are held locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally.
Montessorians believe deeply in the value of their work. They know that they are making a contribution to society. They are serious and dedicated to offering a quality education. Interesting colleagues are easy to find because the field of Montessori education attracts committed and sensitive persons.
