The NCME National Reporter Says "Good-Bye" and Montessori Life Says "Hello"

Article excerpt

When NCME and AMS began to analyze the services we each offered, and compare our organizational goals, we realized we were much more alike than different. We asked why we were duplicating services and efforts when we could work together and be more productive. With this question in mind, many individuals volunteered much time and energy to identify in detail the various components of our organizations.

I so appreciate your efforts. And, I want to encourage all NCME members and readers, in the spirit of collaboration, to support Montessori Life through articles, photographs, and letters to the editors. …
