The VMS directresses (teachers) are trained with a keen sense of observation and have a deep and loving concern for each child. While they are willing to dedicate all of their energies to the students who need them, they are also able to disappear in a small corner of the classroom to allow the “child to be his own teacher.” At VMS, the directresses prepare the environment, direct and supervise activities, function as the leaders, and offer each child stimulation, but it is the child himself who learns.
Each Montessori directress holds an AMI diploma and faculty members participate in the development and growth of the program.
