U.S.Department of Education Recognition

The MACTE Commission on Accreditation is one of two agencies that accredit teacher education which are recognized by the U.S.D.E. The other Is the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), which accredits most of the Teacher Education Programs within colleges and universities in the U.S.

Caspari Montessori Institute International

PAMS is also associated with the Caspari Montessori Institute International, founded in memory of Dr. Elisabeth Caspari in Montana.

With great sadness, we must report that Dr. Feland Meadows passed away this morning. The world today has lost a man of legendary heart and love for Montessori, his family, and friends.

On her way to the airport, Sibley Alkon Meadows said that the family truly appreciates the outpouring of love and concern from the Montessori World.

We will post more details on Facebook and arrangements as they become available. We wish Joan, Sibley, and the entire Meadows family peace and comfort at this time.
