Maria Montessori was a physician, surgeon and head of the Department of Anthropology at the University of Rome. As she approached her 40th birthday, she discovered qualities of children that caused her to change her entire life, and to follow the child to the secrets of mankind that lay hidden within. Join us as we review the momentous discoveries that made her change her life and that drive the expansion of the Montessori Method throughout the world.
Transform your teaching day by gaining insight into your expectations, triggers and relationships. Where to begin?
Start to gain perspective, let your goals guide you and find your supportive people (including yourself). Join the conversation.
If we’re having ongoing difficulties with our child, the relationship is where we need to focus first. Children don’t enjoy being “difficult”. Their first choice is always to act in a way that connects to us. But Children misbehave when their other behavior isn’t getting the message through to us. Those behaviors can be considered “miscues”.
The task for us, as parents, is to learn how to recognize and respond to the messages our children are sending (their cues and miscues). When we learn this skill well, our children (and our relationship with them) will thrive.

Within the heart of Montessori’s message that each child is driven from within by his own inner teacher and guided from without by teachers and adults who understand this message, we see a universal key —for all children.
Have you ever wondered whether the children in a Montessori public school such as a charter or magnet school truly receive the best Montessori has to offer?
Join us as we briefly explore a bit of research and talk about some of the essential elements that contribute to the highest quality public sector Montessori – often referred to as “high-fidelity” Montessori. Angela and Diana, Montessori teachers who have worked within the public setting will share some of their balancing acts during their years together.
What do soccer practices, piano lessons and play rehearsals have in common? If you answered, “time to practice skills,” you are right. Parents spend a lot of time taking children to rehearsals and practices for sports and other hobbies.
Teachers have children practice math, reading and writing. Yet, how much time do we take to teach our children meaningful skills in life, specifically social skills? For some reason we think children should somehow just know these skills.
In this webinar we will touch upon some practical social skills that teachers and parents can share with their children in fun and natural ways.
