Wendy Tye (Upper Elementary Guide) and Matt Hillis (Executive Director) serve as Bergamo Montessori’s representation on the world stage as AMI Bold Goal gathers this weekend in Seattle.
They join Lynne Lawrence, AMI President, and a number of prominent Montessori leaders (from AMI training centers around the world, such as NAMTA, National Center for Montessori in the Public Sector and the National Montessori Census), and are supported by the Walton Family Foundation. Bold Goal continues a research and strategic planning initiative designed to triple Montessori presence (and hence our social impact) in the U.S. by 2021.
Recruitment, training, and support of AMI Teachers/Guides and their school communities are being transformed – and this means better lives for children and families. For more information, you can contact Jacquie Maughan, Communications Coordinator AMI Bold Goal Initiative, at Jacquie.Maughan@gmail.com.
Update From Wendy: “I had a terrific weekend in Seattle representing the board on which I serve, AMI-EAA (Elementary Alumni Association). There is a lot of amazing work on behalf of children around the world, and I am so proud to be a part of it!
Our goal is to triple the number of AMI trained teachers and therefore, triple our impact on children, by 2021. Thank you for already being a part of our movement to create schools that respect children and that prepare them not just for their next years in school, but also prepare them for their lives.”
