mission & vision
1987 - TAMIA was formed by a group of alumni to support one another on behalf of the child.
In order to qualify as a TAMIA member you must hold an AMI diploma in any level of training.
"TAMIA is a convivial group of talented, strong, learned and dedicated individuals, who have come together to support one another in our daily work on behalf of the child. Our commitment to the child is universal and unrelenting. Our individual trainings, based on the teachings of Dr. Montessori, haven given us the strength and insight to uphold, propagate and further the pedagogical principles and practices formulated by Dr. Maria Montessori for the full development of the human being (AMI Aims, Article 3). We must exemplify the principles of Dr. Montessori, not only in our professional lives but in our private lives. Our pledge is to be active in our classrooms and in our communities, locally and globally because Montessori is a social movement. If we see a need we must find a way to fill it, if we see a possibility for change or improvement then we must assume the responsibility to do the work, if we have the will then we will be successful.
