Continuing Education

Jeannine Hanson serves as a Washington State Approved Continuing Education Trainers through MERIT and presents continuing teacher education workshops to fulfill Washington State required STARS (State Training and Registry System).


MCTE would like to present to you a series of workshops offered during this academic year.  This is to facilitate opportunities for new and experienced Early Childhood and Elementary Teachers, along with Administrators, to complete required STARS continuing education hours.  It will also help new teachers meet new guidelines established by the American Montessori Society (AMS), requiring holders of AMS credentials issued on or after July 1, 2013 complete 50 hours of professional development every five years for the credential to remain active.  We hope that you will enjoy participating in one or more of our workshops.
