AMS Seeks Executive Assistant to the Deputy Director
As the holiday season takes hold, I would like to wish each and every one of you a 2018 filled with peace, joy, and laughter. I recently came across an article by Jane Mack, a founding teacher of Lexington Montessori School and an LMS headmistress, as well as an active pioneer in AMS. I find it as relevant today as it was when it was written in 1974 for AMS’s The Constructive Triangle (the precursor to Montessori Life). I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
This article was written by Jane Mack in 1974. It originally appeared in AMS’s The Constructive Triangle, Vol. 1, No. 1. (the precursor to Montessori Life). Jane, who lived 1926 – 2012, was founding teacher of Lexington Montessori School in Lexington, MA (along with several parents) and an LMS headmistress. She was also very active in AMS. We believe it is relevant today as it was when it was written more than 40 years ago—and wish each and every one of you a glorious—and reflective—2018!

We would like to share with you a Montessori Policy Landscape Analysis that was created for the MPPI. Based on research conducted earlier in the year, the analysis can serve as a rich resource for advocacy on behalf of high-quality Montessori education.
