Teachers

A Montessori child has the same teacher for every three years, while attending Montessori. As a trained professional, this “enlightened generalist” has knowledge deep enough to know the fascinating details of each of the disciplines and broad enough to connect those details into a “big picture” across the disciplines.  A Montessori teacher does not specialize in subject matter, but specializes in the “whole child.”  A teacher who has a child for three years gains an intimate knowledge of the child, which is seldom possible in a one-year classroom relationship. The teacher is keenly tuned in to the unique personality of each child. This sensitivity permits the teacher to “direct” the child into areas of natural interest.
