Although a teacher can be instructed in the use of the Montessori materials and the preparation of the physical environment, the psychological preparation of the teacher requires a much deeper study. Dr. Montessori placed great importance on the psychological formation of the teacher. In fact, to attain the skills necessary to guide a class of children in the spirit of the Montessori method may require a profound personal inner transformation. This essay attempts to identify the transformation which Montessori wished to elicit in the preparation of her teachers. It emphasizes the importance of working towards a personal psychological integration between practical aspects of the teaching profession, such as record keeping and tracking the children's academic progress, and the ideal aspect of making each learning experience enjoyable for the children. The essay includes tips on the effectiveness of using the Albanesi Curriculum Program to help teachers determine an objective evaluation of each child's individual academic progress.
