What is different about a Montessori teacher?

A Montessori education means that a child has a very special guide for his/her self-led journey. Teachers are Montessori certified after completing 100’s of hours of rigorous training. They are skilled at asking questions rather than providing ready-made answers. They know how to build a child’s self esteem and confidence. The environment and method provide discipline while the Montessori teacher provides guidance.
