Gabriela Velazquez

Gabriela’s Montessori journey began as a child. Her mother was a Montessori teacher, so she grew up attending Montessori schools in México. It was only natural that she also decided to pursue a career in Montessori education upon reaching adulthood. After completing her degree in Early Childhood Education, she earned the AMI Assistants to Infancy diploma.  She would go on to work for more than 20 years in Montessori schools in México and the United States. Gabriela completed the demanding AMI Training of Trainers program to be named an AMI Trainer at the level of 0-3 Assistants to infancy.  She has worked on 0-3 teacher-training courses in Argentina, Denver, San Diego, and Taiwan.

Recently presented 0-3 Assistant Certificate courses in Phoenix, China, Argentina, Spain, and Mexico.  She serves as a lecturer, consultant, and examiner for AMI, and she is the Director of Training at Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in Mesa, Arizona. Instituto Montessori Valencia in Valencia, Spain, and at the Montessori Training Center Poznan in Poznan, Poland.
