Montessori Teacher Training
Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center (GCMTEC), is AMS affiliated and MACTE accredited. Located in Houston Texas, the center was initially conceived after several years of our trainers working with other Montessori teacher education programs. The Director, Erika Ohlhaver, was also working with public school Montessori programs and realized that the previous timeline for educating Elementary I-II (ages six through twelve) teachers was not practical for the implementation of the Montessori method for new teachers.

Driven by innovation and how it may be beneficially used in the Montessori classroom, we integrate, and leverage the power of our brand, to bring teachers and students inspiration, creativity and new ideas on new curriculum, and activities that will allow them to function and meet the requirements set by the educational community of  the 21st century.​

MontessoriViews is an ETC® company. Our mission therefore folds in and is aligned with the greater mission of ETC® Montessori.
