Cultural Kits

MMA was first organized in by a group of Montessori teachers and administrators interested in creating a regional Montessori network. MMA's board of Directors is a volunteer group of administrators and teachers from member schools who meet throughout the school year to plan MMA events and manage the organization. MMA hosts an annual Head of School Networking meeting each winter, which the Heads of all member schools are invited to attend. If you are interested in becoming more involved with the board contact a board member for information. Meeting dates are posted in advance on this website in the "Events" section.
