A Look at Learning Support at Cambridge Montessori School

October 11, 2016
As I enter my third year at Cambridge MontessoriSchool, I am amazed at the truly collaborative approach that our school has developed in order to best support our students' academic and social growth.  
The Learning Support Team (LST) at CMS is made up of three learning specialists who provide additional resources to our community through specialized academic support, parent/teacher consultation and training, individualized counseling and social skills training. Our team tailors our services to an array of learning styles and behaviors. Additionally, we strive to equip our teachers with a variety of accommodations and strategies in order accommodate all students. The specialized training of the LST and comprehensive teaching approach provide our students with the tools necessary to be successful, active, self-directed learners.
We have worked hard to ensure that the services we provide either align with or complement the Montessori educational philosophy. Just as in the Montessori classroom, our goal is to help our students to be independent and self-driven thinkers, and our approach is centered around multi-sensory learning. We provide support in the areas of reading (Orton Gillingham and Wilson), math, writing, organization (executive functioning) and social emotional skills. By developing strong relationships with students,teachers, and families, we are able to help our students "unleash" their fullest potential.

Having worked with many schools over the course of my career, I can attest to the fact that it is truly unique for a school to have a  dedicated team of specialists who are both formally trained in effective, research-based supports and fully integrated into the classroom and school communities. We look forward to continuing our work with our students and their families this year, and are very enthusiastic about the potential to support new students and families.
