Montessori Elementary Classroom Assistant Training

Working in a Montessori classroom is a unique and exciting teaching experience for both the teacher and assistant. In a Montessori classroom, the assistant plays a vital role in assisting the lead teacher. The Assistant’s Course is a practical approach to learning the philosophy and Montessori way of working in the classroom and school. Adult learners spend four weeks on their own schedule discovering how to truly be a Montessori professional. Through concise readings, online forums, short videos and assigned activities, they learn their role and the expectations of the job. 

The course includes instruction on essential Montessori concepts such as observation, the inner teacher, the Cosmic Curriculum, the prepared environment, importance of community, stages of development, sensitive periods and normalization. 

In their studies, the adult learners discover how to build relationships and trust with the children while gaining practical strategies in classroom dynamics, including when and how to intervene, re-direct and resolve conflicts. 

Sample assignments include building a glossary of Montessori concepts and observing a student. Students will interact with their peers with online forums, learning from each other by sharing their experiences.
