Amra Haseljic is from Bosnia and Herzegovina but has spent most of her adult life in Rome where the Montessori method was born. She holds a degree in Modern Foreign Languages and has specialised in early childhood education, completing a master’s degree in education from the University of Roma Tre and the Centre for Montessori Studies. Her proficiency in child education was recognised by MoMo, an Italian quarterly Montessori magazine: in 2015 she authored an article titled ‘Introducing cultural differences to children through a variety of Montessori activities’.
Amra has worked in various childcare settings, including caring and educating young infants in Montessori creches and assisting immigrant children with leukaemia. In September 2016, she joined Montessori House Brussels becoming a valued member of the teaching staff.
In 2020, after more than twenty years of building experience in early childhood education, Amra was asked to become part of management, thus strengthening the governing body of the school. To deepen her expertise in Montessori education, Amra pursued the AMI course for Montessori guide in early childhood education, which she completed in July 2022.
Currently, alongside being a teacher, she actively participates in managing Montessori House Brussels, sharing her extensive knowledge and experience with colleagues and children. In her free time Amra enjoys cooking, music, cinema, and travelling. Amra firmly believes that ‘The hand is the instrument of the intelligence’ (M. Montessori).
