Teaching is a noble and respected profession and we need well educated and dedicated people who want to educate our children. Montessori has schools all over the world on six continents, but you need to have a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree to get started and then will need to add some specialized Montessori classes as well. There are lots of ways to get started.
Go and visit a Montessori school and make an appointment to talk to the administrator. Ask for advice and see if you can get a tour. Perhaps you can volunteer at the school and see what you think of it. Go ahead and dream about it a little. Don’t let anything stand in your way of fulfilling your dream of being a Montessori teacher.
