Choosing a career path is undoubtedly one of the most important decisions we make in our lives. Priorities can vary greatly from one individual to the next. Some consider personal fulfilment to be most important when choosing a career. Advancement opportunities are also significant factors. Then of course, there is the undeniable importance of salary. Being a Montessori teacher can be highly fulfilling and rewarding. The calm, peaceful nature of the prepared Montessori classroom creates a feeling of wellbeing you won’t often find in traditional work environments. “Montessorians” tend to be people who achieve uncommon levels of personal growth. The Montessori Method is philosophically different from other educational methods, and also very different from the personal educational background of most adults who become Montessori teachers. Being a Montessori teacher isn’t the same as teaching in a traditional school system. You’ll be teaching multi-age classrooms, supporting your students’ independent learning, and playing a facilitator role. Montessori education is more about letting students discover, learn, and explore than about sitting students down and teaching them all the same lessons.
