The AMI-Elementary Alumni Association is a non-profit grassroots organization of AMI-trained elementary teachers. Our aim is to support the expansion of AMI Montessori elementary education to more children around the world by supporting all those in AMI who are working in the elementary: classroom teachers, trainers, trainees, consultants and more. Our work is a growing worldwide effort carried out in public, charter, and private schools. We support the development of children and the progress of humanity.
The roots of AMI-EAA lie in the informal networks that formed between graduates of AMI elementary courses given in the USA in late 1960’s and early 1970’s. As numbers grew and elementary practice matured, so did the need for a more formal and regular means of support and continuing education. AMI-EAA was incorporated in 1980 as a non-profit educational organization, and our work has continued to mature and expand through the dedicated efforts of our members and their AMI trainers.
