Montessori Madmen

Advocating Montessori

We're an impatient, ragtag group of dads and advocates from around the world, united by a common zeal to bring the Montessori method to millions more. Our mission is simple: to advocate for Montessori education so that one day it's not called Montessori school; it's just called school.

We Want That Teacher!

Who's up for another challenge? First it was Mr. Stephen Round, the Rhode Island conventional-school teacher whose "I Quit" video went viral with almost 300,000 views in one month. Due to wonderful generosity, he was offered a full scholarship for AMI Montessori training. He has accepted and will be starting soon. The Montessori MadMen are going to continue the "WE WANT THAT TEACHER!" challenge.

We would love to offer Kris Nielsen a scholarship for Montessori training. Mr. Nielsen was a conventional-school teacher in North Carolina (here is his blog) whose letter of resignation last fall was picked up by the Washington Post. The MadMen are gonna go get him! Who out there is willing to contribute toward a scholarship for Kris?
