Why Become a Montessori Teacher?

Montessori teachers love their work. Whether embarking on your first career or looking for more inspiration in your current field, the first step to finding a job that brings you deep satisfaction is to think carefully about what really drives you. We are far more likely to be successful in an occupation we feel passionate about!

When we asked Montessori teachers what they love most about their careers here's what they said:

 

• Montessori training isn’t just a way to land a great job in 9-months. It’s a transformative journey that deepens one’s understanding of the potential of children and their ability to transform the world.

• Educating children in this unique way connects you to an international community of people working, typically with great humility and respect, to improve a struggling educational system.

• Your job doesn’t have to make you miserable! Montessori training opens the door to a more meaningful job, a better life, and a happier you.

We all possess a unique combination of assets that we bring to all that we do; attributes such as personality, skill sets, abilities, and experiences. At Montessori Northwest, we believe those diverse, sometimes disparate, qualities often are essential to create a community of great teachers. And if applying your passions to an educational approach that helps children reach their full potential in all areas of life—cognitive, social, emotional, and physical—appeals to you, a career in as a Montessori education teacher might is be worth considering.
