Newborough Teacher Training Institute has given me the confidence to move ahead in my teaching vocation. It gave me the opportunity to step back and reflect on what I do, how well I do it, and where I can improve as an educator in the classroom.
I found the Montessori Early Childhood Education Program to be intensive, and very personalized, while affording me with valuable one-on-one relationships with the faculty.
Newborough Teacher Training Institute has delivered on its promise of quality in their lectures and course work. I have never worked so hard, nor felt so proud of the work I have accomplished, as I did while attending the course offered by the Newborough, and learning the Montessori teaching method.
