I have been toying with the idea of getting certified to teach montessori school, early childhood. I have been researching different training programs in my area and reading alot about Montessori philosophy and methodology and it seems like a great fit for me. I have noticed though that on forums such as this most of the posters are teachers who are very passionate and postive, which I love. But many other forums where parents are the main contributors they seem either very excited or very angry with montessori schools. I wonder if the angry parents maybe have encountered poorly trained teachers/admin., were not in a true montessori school, or if they have legitimate concerns about how a montessori classroom runs. I'm trying to sift through all of this because I spent so long getting my art teaching certification only to discover that public school is not for me, and I'd hate to do it again with a montessori certification. Any thoughts on the discrepencies between happy/angry parents and all these positive teachers?
