The role of a Montessori teacher is one of a guide and observer, whose ultimate goal is to intervene less and less as the child develops.

The teacher builds an atmosphere of calm, order, and joy in the classroom and encourages the children in all their efforts, thus promoting self-confidence and discipline.

The teacher gives individual and small group instructions amidst the working and social atmosphere in the classroom. Understanding when to observe and when to intervene is a skill the Montessori teacher develops after receiving rigorous and specialized training from Montessori training centers in the United States or abroad.
