Montessori Certified Teachers
Trained, experienced teachers are the foundation of an effective Montessori environment at Austin Children’s Academy. Our Montessori teachers have been rigorously trained beyond their university studies in the Montessori philosophy, principles, and method. They guide children in self-discovered learning through assistance, correction, and encouragement to promote development of mind, body, and spirit. Teachers adjust to each individual child’s learning pace and needs, guiding students to explore new topics and accept challenges. Our Montessori teachers’ firm, supportive, and kind demeanor is the key to the success of ACA. They serve as role models of warmth, kindness, and respect, setting clear and consistent challenges in a positive and supportive environment.
We discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being. – Dr. Maria Montessori
It’s more than just a class
All teachers at ACA work together in teams to ensure each classroom environment is stimulating and motivating. They design engaging materials and lesson plans and often incorporate cultural teachings and holiday themes. Montessori materials are important to the implementation of the method. The high-quality, carefully crafted materials lead children to discover and understand concepts in a hands-on and engaging way. Each presents a distinct idea and has a self-correcting control to help children learn successfully and independently.
