Teacher Comments on Training

MESS  promotes Montessori education in the Savannah community and supports the teachers of Charles Ellis in achieving Montessori certification, a three-year process that requires teachers to devote their evenings, weekends, and summers to Montessori training. Check out some of the comments from our dedicated teachers regarding their training:

“Participation in the Montessori certification program has completely changed my personal philosophy of education and my understanding of the Montessori method. The coursework has empowered me to create an environment in my classroom that better meets the needs of my students. The unique experience of taking the courses with my colleagues has strengthened our working relationships. It would not be possible for me to complete the coursework for this program without the financial help of MESS.”

“I so appreciate Mess for sponsoring our teachers for this excellent opportunity. It is so helpful to learn and practice with other Montessori teachers from other schools, and I am always excited to get back into the classroom to try something new I’ve learned. I’ve already implemented a few changes in our morning meeting – calling it community meeting now, and letting the 6th years lead it. Each week a student chooses a song and a piece of art that goes along with it that reflects some feeling, inspiration, or idea, then we all have a chance to share and acknowledge others if they wish. And then we prepare for the rest of our day with Brain Gym! And this is just one example.”

“This training was a gift. It strengthened community. It motivated reflection and work on finding inner peace. The teacher was inspiring.”
