Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.

OMA Outstanding Dedication Award

OMA’s Outstanding Dedication Award is presented each year to an inspiring member of the Montessori community, whose commitment to outreach and exceptional practice is recognized by his/her peers and colleagues. This award seeks to honor and offer gratitude to the recipient for his/her outstanding work in promoting the well-being of children and fostering a community of support for parents, school communities, and fellow Montessorians. This award is given at OMA’s Spring Tea, where recent teacher training graduates are honored and the Susie Huston Memorial Award for excellence in teaching is presented to a Montessori guide.¬† Learn more about the Outstanding Dedication Award.
