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 2018-2019:
- LMS sent nine teachers, from all levels, to the American Montessori Society (AMS) annual conference in Washington, D.C. where Middle School teacher, Kim McMaken-Marsh and Upper Elementary teacher, Seth Johnson were named "Emerging Leader Fellows."
- Two Spanish teachers were able to attend the Massachusetts Foreign Language Association (MaFLA) Conference.
- A total of 14 Faculty and Administration members attended the Montessori Schools of Massachusetts (MSM) annual conference at Dean College.
