Director, Institute for Advanced Montessori Studies; Silver Spring, MD
AMS-credentialed (Elementary I)
TES and TEAC are critical governance groups for the American Montessori Society and teacher education programs. The work done over the years to improve and address quality within teacher education programs, to align the accreditation process with MACTE, and to work cohesively with the School Accreditation Commission have moved AMS teacher education in a positive direction. I am committed to helping to continue to strengthen the relationships among teacher education programs, with MACTE and with other Montessori organizations. I will continue to work with the other members of the TES executive committee and the AMS teacher education department staff to bring quality professional development opportunities to teacher education program faculty and staff. My deep commitment to Montessori education and belief in the importance of high standards and expectations for all, along with my strong organizational and communication skills, make me ready to take on this next role within the organization.
