Practical Life for Montessori Teachers in Uncertain and Unsettling Times
Time & Location
About the Event
Today Montessori teachers worldwide are being asked to work in ways that are foreign to our philosophy of hands-on, self-directed learning. All of a sudden, we’ve had to become online technology experts, parenting coaches, entertainers, and curriculum creators. This startling shift of roles and responsibilities for many of us has come with added stress, anxiety, and frustration. How Montessori teachers can navigate these uncharted waters by engaging in daily self-care and life-work balance is the topic of a 90-minute webinar with Jonathan Wolff, international Montessori consultant, teacher educator, and leadership coach.
In this interactive, adult learning experience, you will have an opportunity to get answers, ideas, and resources:
- Mind-body tools and techniques for relieving stress and anxiety, how to re-balance and re-focus your energy for “Rapid Renewal”
- Strategies for staying positive, hopeful, and creative, from the field of Positive Psychology
- Community-building group self-care activities for teachers, parents, and school leaders
- How to navigate difficult conversations with parents who are stressed out, upset, or making accusations or unreasonable demands
Jonathan wants to know what challenges you are facing during these difficult times, what drains your energy and is causing you stress or distress. He will address your needs and concerns in the webinar. Please send your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
