High Demand for AMI-Trained Montessori Teachers
AMI-affiliated Montessori schools typically have long waiting lists, and the critical lack of trained Montessori teachers is a significant factor limiting the growth and development of both new and established Montessori schools.
To do its part in remedying this, SIMS organizes job fairs, supports students with practice teaching opportunities, and leverages its excellent reputation and connections in the community to support graduates to step into their career on the right foot. SIMS often receives communications from schools looking for teachers to hire, and these opportunities are passed on to students through our job board and other alerts.
Opportunities for Growth
A career in Montessori education offers many opportunities for ongoing professional development, expanding or shifting roles, and leadership. The Montessori community conducts regular refresher courses across the country for trained teachers as well as special courses for administrators. Experienced Montessori-trained teachers often take on leadership roles in Montessori schools, or open their own schools as entrepreneurs. Others choose to pursue more than one Montessori diploma (for example, Montessori for infants and toddlers, elementary-aged children, or adolescents) and teach various age groups during their careers, or become Montessori teacher trainers themselves.
Whatever your long-term career path, AMI Montessori primary training is your key to opening doors, locally and worldwide.
