Dorothy also serves on AMS/MACTE verifying teams around the world, supporting quality standards in Montessori Education. She gives workshops on teacher development, subject areas, school design, curriculum, and creating a new school, in the US and abroad.
Class work will include a combination of presentation, theory and hands on experience during supervised lab work. The academic part of the program is complemented with distance learning courses within these areas:
Practicum experience is crucial for the transformation of a Montessori teacher. Practicum can be done in a classroom with a Supervising Teacher or can be Self Directed. Observations and discussions with our experienced Field Supervisor will give the Interns support as they work toward Practicum completion.
Two major projects are developed during the Practicum.
The Practicum consists of at least 540 hours during a minimum of 1 school year in a classroom fulfilling AMS standards.
