Marie Dugan

Marie M. Dugan, the American Montessori Society's 2009 Living Legacy visited The Innovative School on Thursday - August 29, 2011. Marie has helped nurture the growth of the American Montessori Society—and, indeed, the American Montessori movement—since the earliest days, when AMS founder Dr. Nancy McCormick Rambusch became her mentor and friend. Marie currently provides consultation on Montessori practices for both public and private schools and is the co-coordinator for the Center for Montessori School Management at the Center for Montessori Teacher Education/New York. Marie spent the morning observing each of our classroom environments. Her feedback at the end was a real treat for our faculty to hear: "It was such a pleasure to be in all the classrooms, I didn't want to leave. What it says on your logo is true, Authentic Montessori Education". Marie later spoke to thirty invited Montessori Heads of Schools at our campus, hosted by The Institute of Montessori Education.  We are avid proponents in supporting Montessori Heads of School networking for the purpose of raising the quality of Montessori education in the greater Houston community.
