Every day, classroom assistants in AMI member schools provide integral support to ensure that children have a high quality Montessori experience.

An Effective Assistant

  • Supports the teacher
  • Prepares and maintains the environment
  • Observes behaviors
  • Models grace and courtesy
  • Preserves and protects lessons
  • Assists in the development of independence

Classroom assistants work with the lead teacher to prepare and maintain an orderly, attractive, and joyful environment. They provide another pair of observant, attentive eyes and ears. Classroom assistants are also crucial in modeling courteous and respectful behavior as well as contributing to the warm, supportive, and calm atmosphere that is the hallmark of AMI classrooms.
