What's next for Ginni Sackett? Something to celebrate!

Last week, here at Montessori Northwest in Portland, we hosted a Celebratory Reception for MNW Primary Trainer Ginni Sackett.  We celebrated Ginni's past and present with MNW, and her future with the world of AMI. We will relish finishing this summer's Primary Course together,  and then (like the cake said) wish her well with much LOVE and GRATITUDE as she moves on to her next adventure...

Volunteers Needed

Planning for January 30th’s Celebration of Light, Montessori Northwest’s annual dinner and party (more on that here), is in full swing. For 10 years the event has been a fabulously sparkly recognition of MNW’s work and the work of all Montessorians in the Pacific Northwest. This year’s Celebration will feature live music, games, a photo booth, open bar, and delicious dinner.

December 4th Bay Area Information Session


For Fall 2015, Montessori Northwest (MNW), one of the nation’s top Montessori teacher training centers, is planning to offer new Montessori teacher certification courses at a convenient Bay Area location. We plan to offer classes on a block schedule, in the afternoons and on evenings, making the program ideal for people wanting to become teachers, while continuing in their careers. (learn more about this exciting opportunity here.)

On Thursday, December 4th, Admissions representatives from Montessori Northwest, in addition to teacher trainers and alumni, will host an information session about becoming an AMI Montessori teacher. Anyone interested in early childhood education, including working with babies & toddlers, and those already working in traditional education, are invited to come learn why becoming a trained Montessori "Guide" might be a great career path for you.

Montessori teacher training with MNW in the San Francisco Bay Area will enable you to earn an AMI diploma that opens the door to a fulfilling teaching career.  You will learn how to guide children on a journey of discovery—of themselves, of each other, and of the world around them.

RSVP by clicking here, though walk-ins are always welcome.
