Our Teachers

The backbone of our school

At every level, our students are guided by dedicated and well-experienced Montessori teachers.

CMH is proud to employ a faculty of certified Montessori teachers – all our educators are members of the American Montessori Society. We are also affiliated with and a member school of the Cincinnati Montessori Society. More importantly, our entire staff follows the authentic Montessori philosophy and its singular method of interacting with and supporting children at their most critical junctures in development and education.

Our low student-to-teacher ratio gives teachers time and opportunity for instruction that is authentically individual. They observe and interact one-on-one to determine strengths, uncover weaknesses and support each appropriately. With teachers as guides, learning occurs in small groups or with students in partnership as mentors.

As an educational institution, CMH is affiliated with the American Montessori Society. As a Cincinnati private school governed by a board of trustees, elected members oversee and direct general school business in collaboration with our school director, such as financial health, operational issues, fundraising and recruitment.
