Faculty and Staff

All BHMS teachers are thoroughly grounded in Maria Montessori's philosophy and trained in her methods. They have a clear understanding of children's capabilities and challenges and are able to guide them on a learning path that capitalizes on their strengths. Our teachers facilitate your child's learning by creating a nurturing, peaceful environment and by modeling respectful, gentle behavior.

One of Blue Hill Montessori School's strengths is its highly stable and experienced staff. Our low teacher turnover means your child receives consistent care, not only from day to day, but from year to year, as many of our teachers are involved in more than one program. Many of our teachers have worked their entire careers at BHMS and are now teaching the second generation children of BHMS alumni. This kind of commitment and devotion to early childhood education is unusual today.

 

Our Lead teachers hold current Montessori certification from the American Montessori Society. They continually participate in professional development courses and classes, and all staff have degrees in education or a related field.
