The Montessori Residency of Chicago’s mission is to recruit, train, and coach a diverse corps of teachers in underserved schools, primarily in urban areas. The training and coaching program is designed to leverage the Montessori approach’s strengths and offer a relevant, high-impact education in these communities.
