OMA strives to support educators by providing area-wide workshops and lectures, monthly news bulletins and articles, and hosting pub night gatherings.  Please, be sure we have your contact information, so we can keep you up-to-date!  And, visit our Calendar regularly to see event information and updates.  If you have ideas for workshops or would like to contribute an article about your school or professional development, feel free to contact us or call 503-740-8773.

Participate in our longstanding tradition of recognizing fellow educators and community members by learning more about the Susie Huston Award and OMA’s Outstanding Dedication Award.  Since 1993, OMA has been honoring guides, administrators, and community members who have promoted the mission of OMA and shared their exceptional gifts through the practice of Montessori philosophy.  View the pages at right to learn more about these awards, and be sure to join us for the ceremony at our Annual Spring Tea, in May.

Need materials, new staff, or any of the million items you need to run a classroom or a school?  Check out our Classified Ads.  Can’t find a Montessori material catalogue? Check out our Educator Resources Page.

For a rich library of resources and articles by fellow Montessorians, view the Forza Vitale! Archives, at right.  The archives span the years since 2006 – look back at the earlier writings for inspiration you can use today.

And, be sure to direct your parents to the Parent Resource Center, where they can find articles of interest and resources for the home.

Thank you for being a part of OMA and contributing to this outstanding community of Montessorians throughout Oregon and SW Washington.
