About the Event
As each new school year approaches, many teachers struggle to determine exactly what they should be doing in order to ensure a successful Montessori experience for their students.
This workshop is designed to help teachers understand the specific “mechanics of operation” that lay the foundation for normalization in the casa classroom.
The actions a directress should undertake during the critical, early weeks in September will be examined in detail. Strategies that support the maintenance of normalization throughout the school year will also be outlined and discussed.
If you have ever wondered if your class is unfolding as it should, this workshop is for you.
