Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center continues to closely monitor the global outbreak of SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes the novel Coronavirus, known as COVID-19. We will continue to keep our community informed as developments occur. To date, we have not identified any cases at any of our campuses.

Enrollment is moving forward:
Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center is moving forward with the 2020 training cohort
We are also continuing to offer support to our 2019 cohorts.
Depending on where we are with COVID-19 and the number of people who can travel or attend and congregate in common spaces, we are planning to offer one or the other of the following options.
Option A: In residence instruction:
This is the normal method that most training centers have been using for years. Adult learners attending Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center will be able to attend either the Houston or Charleston environments to receive in person training for either Early Childhood (Houston) or Elementary I/II (Houston & Charleston centers)
Option B: A blended distance learning with a synchronous training model:
GCMTEC is fully technologically equipped to provide a structured and efficient learning environment. To do this we have placed in motion a number of up-to-date and current IT instructional methods including:
Digital access to manuals/albums
Online-live conversations and meetings
Digital support materials for downloads and printing
Digitally available reading materials for philosophy and child development
Live streaming of instructor support
Webinars and live meeting instructional periods
Virtual observations (as needed) and more
