MAMSE is the Michigan Association of Middle School Educators. Founded in 1971 by Dr. Louis G. Romano and a group of middle level educators, MAMSE is the oldest middle level professional organization in the country. Members include all who are interested in the education of young adolescents — teachers, administrators, supervisors, parents, college personnel, state department officials and student s. It is governed by an executive board made up of elected officers and regional representatives. MAMSE members helped start the National Middle School Association in 1973. As an affiliate of the National Middle School Association, MAMSE is the official voice for Michigan’s middle level people.
