Brevard Montessori School Staff

In a Montessori learning environment a teacher is referred to as a "Directress".

As a Directress, it is one's responsibility to guide the child in his/her endeavors. Dr. Montessori recognized the motto of the young child to be "help me to do it myself". She believed the purpose of a directress is not to let children only do what they want to do, but to insure that children like what it is they need to do.

Directresses at Brevard Montessori have many options, but this is the place they have chosen to be. Here they are able to fulfill their professional aspirations to work with children in a high quality Montessori learning environment. Directresses are not merely employees, but partners in an important mission, the preparation of a child for life.

Our Montessori directresses have over 30 years experience in a Montessori learning environment. Our staff members are dedicated professionals whose goal is to provide a well-prepared, developmentally appropriate Montessori learning environment for children. Brevard Montessori supports this goal through a well-equipped classroom, inservice training, and professional development opportunities for our staff members.
