Supporting Teacher Education to Improve Student Learning
The Jane Mack Teacher Development and Montessori Training Fund
was created to honor the first Head of School and one of the founders of Lexington Montessori School. This fund allows LMS teachers to take advantage of the many professional development opportunities offered to both newer and veteran teachers.
Great teachers help create great students! In fact, research shows that an inspiring and informed teacher is the most important school-related factor influencing student achievement. Donate Now!
Below are just a few of the examples of how LMS teachers benefited from this fund in recent years:
- Two Children’s House teachers attended sessions at the Center for Parents and Teachers—discussions focused on bringing STEM into the classroom and also learning new behavior management techniques for struggling children.
- A Spanish teacher attended an American Council on Teaching Foreign Language (ACTFL) Conference where she spent time with other language teachers from around the country discussing and expanding on the best practices in language.
- Five toddler teachers attended a Montessori Seminar for Toddler Teachers.
