Workshop

Self-Reflection as a Vehicle for the Transformation of the Montessori Educator

 

Reflection is a powerful practice that is often underutilized in the busy day-to-day lives of educators. This workshop introduces a new self-reflection tool designed collaboratively by a group of Montessori teacher trainers and coaches to be used both in teacher preparation programs as well as in schools. The goal is to introduce the importance of reflection in training and to continue it beyond training into educator's lives in schools. Please join us to explore the reflection tool and learn about the pilot program.
