Feltin Joins AMSSAC

Damore, Sharon

Most recently elected to the AMS School Accreditation Commission (AMSSAC) is Dr. Pat Feltin, head of Eton School, Bellevue, WA. The Commission believes that she will be a tremendous asset in supporting school accreditation nationally. Feltin has led her own school through AMS joint accreditation with the Pacific Northwest Association of Independent Schools (PNMA). Eton also was the first Montessori school to receive the US Department of Education Blue Ribbon award in 1994. Feltin received her doctorate from Seattle University and holds Montessori 3-6 certification. On a personal note, she is the proud grandmother of two, ages 10 months and 2 ½, who live in London. Feltin believes that her greatest success in running a school is having a supportive family (husband, two sons, and a daughter) and the ability to hire the best people available. The Commission welcomes Dr. Feltin and looks forward to her leadership and expertise in school accreditation.

The AMS School Accreditation Commission is a group of experienced, dedicated peers who encourage and facilitate school self-improvement by overseeing the accreditation process and determining quality in accordance with AMS standards. The Commission’s work includes the review of standards, policies and procedures, and training for AMS school accreditation. The Commission makes school accreditation recommendations to the AMS board of directors. Current commissioners are listed on the AMS website: www.amshq.org.
