“The training of the teacher who is to help life is something far more than the learning of ideas. It includes the training of character; it is a preparation of the spirit.” ~ Maria Montessori

Our Mission

Our Mission

The Montessori ONE Teacher Training Institute (MOTTI) is dedicated to preparing Association Montessori International (AMI) certified teachers for the purpose of educating children holistically whereby the cognitive, emotional, physical, spiritual, and social development are valued equally. As the only Montessori teacher training program featuring a Philosophy of Indigenous Education track, MOTTI graduates are prepared to educate globally, in diverse or sovereign communities, and promote equity in education through Montessori philosophy.  We share this mission with our accreditation partner, Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies, and New Mexico-based Indigenous Montessori Institute.
