I have been so thankful for the M.Ed. in Montessori program during the last year. The program has connected me with Montessorians worldwide, and for that, I will forever be grateful. The online platforms have been easy to navigate, and I have found the work to be manageable while working full-time in our school. I have been able to continue to move forward in my personal growth when the rest of my life feels like we are standing still.

The biggest takeaway from my experience at Loyola University was being immersed with individuals who had completed their training at various age levels. Not only did Loyola open the doors to further my educational journey with a class focused on researching for a dissertation, but it also opened my eyes to furthering my career by getting trained with additional age levels. The class I am most thankful for has been the course on Special Needs, and am constantly implementing the skills, techniques and thought processes I learned during this course.

I was proud to be a part of the inaugural online M.Ed. program at Loyola University Maryland. I chose the program because it offered me a way to expand on my previous work in Montessori education while earning an advanced degree. The course work furthered my knowledge of educational research, refreshed my understanding of Montessori theory, and provided me with both practical and pedagogical know-how that assists me in my daily work with Montessori educators.

[This program] has given me more experience and confidence in my practice as a professional. It gave me tools to do more research and to engage other professionals at a higher level of conversation. It also served as a networking base since I met so many bright and committed people.

I feel as though Montessori Education at Loyola University Maryland has given me all the tools I need to be a successful Montessori guide. The professors have been such a great influence on my education, and I could not ask for anything better!
