Open to women and men, Alverno’s Paraprofessional to Montessori Teacher Licensure program is a streamlined path to Montessori licensure for practicing paraprofessionals who have an associate’s degree or at least 48 credits but not a bachelor’s degree.
As a trained Montessori teacher, you will understand the importance of allowing a child to develop naturally through appropriate lessons and materials based on each child's unique characteristics and abilities. You will learn how to act as a guide to students, assisting each child along his or her own path of discovery.
Alverno’s outcome-oriented curriculum is known nationally and internationally for focusing on you, the student. As part of our approach to learning, students learn the essential knowledge within each course subject while also developing the actual skills needed by nurses not just of today, but also tomorrow.
As a paraprofessional, you already provide crucial support for students in the classroom. The Para to Montessori Teacher Licensure program includes an 8-week student teaching experience that may be completed at your current paraprofessional site.
