In 1968 Lilian Bryan was commissioned by Mario Montessori, son of Maria Montessori, to establish the Montessori Institute Atlanta, an AMI teacher training center. There Lilian directed AMI Primary(3-6) teacher training courses for 43 years. The training center under her leadership became internationally acclaimed and very successful. Lilian Bryan’s many years of Montessori work have won her worldwide recognition. Lilian stood at the foundations of Montessori Institute Prague, having been the first ever AMI trainer who set foot in the Czech Republic. We are eternally grateful to Lilian for her continued support of our work. Lilian, you changed our lives!
