Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by only listening to words, but by experiences directly acquired. ~ Maria Montessori
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.' Maria Montessori
Carnegie House Teachers
The Carnegie House teachers are individuals who all believe in what Maria Montessori has to say about education and the potential of each unique individual. The teachers work as a team, supporting and learning from one another. Teachers attend weekly training and material making as well as identiified external courses, workshops and seminars. This ensures that there is a constant exchange of ideas and creativity. The teachers are respected for who they are and their individual approach to life.. They are challenged to constantly strive for something more for each and every one of the children in their classes. Some teachers are Montessori trained whilst others are traditionally trained. All teachers have a respect and understanding of the Montessori philosophy and are constantly challenged to apply the philosophy deeply into the classrooms. Each member of the staff brings a unique and positive energy to the school.
