Montessori Life Staff & Editorial Advisory Board
Each issue of Montessori Life is born of a careful collaboration between the American Montessori Society, the Montessori Life staff, and the Editorial Advisory Board.

Montessori Life Editorial Advisory Board
The Editorial Advisory Board is composed of credentialed Montessori teachers and teacher educators and members of the broader educational community. These individuals were selected for their expertise in specific areas, qualifying them to advise the editors on matters of journalistic relevance, review manuscripts that fit their particular qualifications, and supplement and reinforce the knowledge of the editors.
