Hello, I have a BFA in Art with no formal training as a teacher. Currently, I am looking into Montessori Programs in Illinois, but have found very few. Seton is close to my area, but their Elementary I program (6-9) is spread out over two summers and won't begin until 2016. I'm 34, and would like to accelerate. Does anyone know of any programs near by I could look into. Also, any suggestions as to preparing for this field in my case. What is the process of becoming this type of educator, lenght of time, and costs?
