Our classroom teachers are certified by the Louisiana State Department of Education. Each teacher has attended the American Montessori Society, Montessori World Education Institute and/or National Center for Montessori Excellence, the approved teacher training programs recognized by the Louisiana Department of Education.

One of the most important strengths of La Printaniere is the dedicated faculty. Their commitment to children enables La Printaniere to offer excellent individualized learning paths.

Montessori teachers are trained observers of children's learning and behavior, allowing them to know when to intervene in the child's learning with a new lesson, a fresh challenge or a reinforcement of basic ground rules. The Montessori classroom is guided by the teacher to control the environment, not the child, and to look at the child to allow their true nature to freely emerge. 

Using their expertise, our teachers function in a team approach to provide a well-rounded learning environment. Our staff loves working with children and takes great pride in teaching them necessary skills and attitudes for a lifetime.

It is necessary for the teacher to guide the child without letting him feel her presence too much, so that she may always be ready to supply the desired help, but may never be the obstacle between the child and his experience.
— Dr. Maria Montessori
