Graduate Testimonial

My time at Newborough Teacher Training Institute was a very pleasant experience. There was never a question or comment that I felt uncomfortable asking. Ms. Taylor was always willing to advise and answer, or even simply discuss any given topic that was brought up. She did not hesitate to share her personal experiences and stories for the benefit of our learning. Her insight and knowledge allowed me to learn to a greater extent than I had personally expected.

In addition to the amicable attitude and demeanor of Ms. Taylor, Paul was also full of extremely logical and relevant information. He has a gift of being able to break down and simplify the Montessori materials and theories in a way that allows one to fully and completely understand, in its entirety, the teachings of Maria Montessori.

I thoroughly enjoyed the entire course and all of the assignments that were given to the class. I am confident in what I do, mainly in part of what I have learned throughout my time and Newborough.
