Montessori Certified Teachers
Our Montessori-certified teachers design their own developmentally responsive, culturally relevant learning environments.
In addition to having undergraduate degrees, all head teachers at our schools below the middle school level are Montessori-certified — the equivalent of a master’s degree. Our middle school teachers are specialists in their respective curricular fields and are Montessori-trained. The training of all of our teachers requires that they develop expanded observational skills so they can match their students’ developmental needs with appropriate materials and activities. They must also master teaching and classroom leadership skills that foster a nurturing environment and support learning.
To enrich our students’ learning, we look for teachers at the Montessori Schools of Flagstaff who bring special talents to the classroom: the creative and dramatic arts, nutrition, linguistics, creative writing, outdoor talents, cycling, and a range of other life skills.
