The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say, ’The children are now working as if I did not exist.Dr. Maria Montessori
Montessori trained teachers, together with their registered early childhood educators or Montessori assistants, are the dynamic link between the prepared environment and the children. At SMS, each class is led by a certified and accredited Montessori teacher whose primary role is to direct the child’s natural energy and provide a programme that meets the social and academic needs of each individual student. The teachers achieve this through keen observation, knowledge, and experience drawn from their training. Through ongoing participation in courses and workshops, the staff and administration keep abreast of current education theories and methods and provide an informative communication link between home and school.
