The main mission of the ICME Montessori Teacher Training Program is to offer an Early Childhood in-depth study of the Montessori Method and Philosophy, to provide academic lecture demonstrations on the Montessori Materials and Curriculum, and to train students to apply the Montessori Method in preparing each of the children they will be responsible for developing to their fullest potential. Student Teachers at ICME are prepared to teach an above average Academic Curriculum along with an excellent understanding of the classroom management principles and techniques to successfully integrate the Montessori Philosophy in a classroom.
ICME takes great pride in providing the best Montessori Teacher Education through rationality with Dr. Maria Montessori’s Philosophy and Pedagogy in mind.

In June 2014, I got involved with my wife, in owning and opening a Montessori School in Coppell, TX. My wife, who is herself a graduate in Child Psychology and has worked as a Montessori Teacher, wanted to own and manage her own Montessori School. As the school grew, we felt the lack of properly trained teachers who were ingrained with the Montessori Philosophy.
With the Montessori method of teaching, we feel the difference a well-trained teacher can make in not only managing a classroom, but also in helping to rationalize the curriculum given to the children at an early age is immense. It is because of this very important observation we decided to start the International Center for Montessori Education Inc., so we could help impart this to future Montessori teachers.
Having researched the various training modules available to future Montessori teachers at the existing training centers in our area, we reached the conclusion that ICME Inc. shall not only be the kind of training center that will provide the opportunity to every trainee in its programs to learn the philosophy and methodology espoused by Dr. Maria Montessori, but also the principles and the techniques needed to manage a Montessori Class successfully with rationality as a standard. It is in this way that future teachers can go out and contribute to the development of each child they will be responsible for.
