Our Teachers and Staff

 

Our faculty is the dynamic link between the children and the classroom environment. In addition to undergraduate and graduate level degrees, classroom teachers at Hudson Montessori School have Montessori certification through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) or the American Montessori Society (AMS). Faculty are committed to modeling lifelong learning and HMS supports ongoing professional development for all faculty and staff.

The lively academic community models the concept of life-long learning and is dedicated to meeting the developmental needs of the students.

Our care of the children should be governed not by the desire to 'make them learn things', but by the endeavor always to keep burning within them the light which is called intelligence.

Dr. Maria Montessori
