Dear NAMTA Colleagues,

Over the next few months, we will be presenting the popular Baltimore conference "Montessori: Learning for All" on Oct. 11-12, 2019. You can still count on us to supply service to the Montessori archives, produce a final NAMTA journal, accept and post job listings, and orders are still being filled through our online store.
