Areas of Work
TIME offers high-quality conference experiences biannually for schools in the Texas area. The Montessori Back to School Conference is hosted in Austin, Dallas, or Houston on a rotating schedule and the New Year Conference is hosted at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church in January.
The most important part of attending a TIME Conference is the valuable information you take home to your community. The ideas and strategies you learn from workshops and speakers can be implemented back home in your school.
Share your knowledge and consider sending us your proposal to present a workshop at an upcoming TIME Conference!

TIME has partnered with ETC Consulting to offer consulting services that help schools through a variety of operating and organizational situations. ETC's consultants and advisors have the understanding; awareness, network, skill and proficiency to successfully guide you and your institution on a variety of areas to help ensure a successful Montessori program.
Interested in a Montessori teaching credential? The following list of independent Montessori teacher education programs in Texas are accredited by the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education(MACTE). TIME can provide a modular summer-intensive teacher education program onsite in partnership with Cambridge Montessori Institute if a MACTE accredited program is not available in your area.
TIME's professional development sessions are designed to meet the needs of all Montessori educators involved in supporting the development of the child in the classroom or leading a school or teacher education program. Our events reflect the feedback and suggestions we receive from the local community and produce an impressive range of topics and presenters.
RESOURCES AND TOOLS
TIME publishes a biannual magazine, Montessori Scoop, a Texas-based publication that serves the growing number of schools and organizations. Montessori Scoop is produced cover-to-cover in a high quality four color print. Montessori Scoop features a blend of current news, upcoming events, neighborhood stories, book reviews, cutting-edge research on child and family development, including best practices on how to raise a healthy, active, self-confident and happy child. The content is authored by a group of highly regarded Montessori professionals with decades of in-the-classroom experience and school administration.
TIME maintains communication with all Montessori schools and programs in Texas and acts as a clearinghouse for Montessori information and communication. TIME also participates on a national level, particularly by supporting various initiatives of the American Montessori Society including fundraising for the AMS Teacher Education Scholarship Fund.
We annually invite the current American Montessori Society Living Legacy to attend and present at our conference. The Living Legacy is an annual tribute to an individual whose dedication and leadership has made a lasting impact on the AMS community. This gives our state an opportunity to personally meet and mingle with the Living Legacy and raise funds to support a cherished AMS practice: the awarding of scholarships to aspiring Montessori educators. Donations in honor of the Living Legacy support the Teacher Education Scholarship Fund. Through the granting of Teacher Education Scholarships, AMS supports the growth of Montessori teachers of tomorrow.
