A Montessori classroom typically has more than 20 kids. If each child does an independent activity, how does the teacher ensure the children are learning?
The Montessori teacher is an expert with respect to observing and knowing the learning style and character of each student. They are also extremely well educated with regard to the development of the human being from birth to adulthood; in this way they are able to respond to developmental needs. Also, the Montessori teacher is a specialist in creating environments that promote personal and academic success.
