Faculty and Staff 2017-07-27T12:01:39-04:00

The New School takes great pride in its faculty and staff members. We strive not only to ensure that our classrooms have well trained and caring teaching professionals, but we seek to provide a strong Montessori community where teamwork and collaboration form the basis of an outstanding educational environment.

All lead teachers are either certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS), the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI), or equivalent international certifying agency. Most classrooms have a second certified teacher and some have Montessori interns in training and assistants.

When hiring faculty and staff, the school requires extensive Montessori knowledge, relevant qualifications, an interdisciplinary approach to teaching, a caring demeanor, a dedication to the field, professionalism, and a love for children.

The greatest sign of success for a teacher is to be able to say, “The children are working as if I did not exist.” – Dr. Maria Montessori
