In our efforts to provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our adult learners and the uncertainties that come with that we have no choice but to cancel our Teacher Education Program for the 2020-2021 school year. We will continue however to refine and update our program so it will be stronger than ever next year. The Columbus Montessori Teacher Education Program looks forward to working to partnering with you on your Montessori journey in the near future. Please feel free to contact Kristi Lethenstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org or 614-231-3790 ext. 23 with any questions or concerns.
