A note on titles and terminology

In Montessori classrooms, we try to use the most accurate terminology possible.  Because of this, your Montessori 3-year-old may come home one day to talk to you about shapes using words like “ovoid” and “dodecahedron.”

Just as we try to start with the right words in lessons, we use a word appropriate to how our faculty function in their titles.  Montessori faculty are rigorously trained to guide their students through new lessons and concepts, and observe  those students and help when necessary – and refrain from interfering when a student is benefiting from figuring out how to do something independently.  Montessori faculty may occasionally give group lessons, but that is the closest they ever come to lecturing, as the folks we call teachers typically do.  That is why we call our Montessori faculty guides.

You can learn more about Montessori terms through our Montessori Glossary.
