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 Montessori teacher is also known as a directress, he/she carefully observes the children in the room to ascertain the developmental needs of each child.
The Montessori practitioner builds an atmosphere of calm, order and joy in the room and encourages the children in all their efforts, thus promoting self-confidence and discipline. They then have the task of preparing the environment and the materials in it to meet the various needs of the individual child.
