25th Annual Montessori Foundation |
November 5-7, 2021
(Pre-conference intensives Nov. 4)
At last! We're getting together again in person.
You are invited to attend the first major in-person Montessori event in a long time. Our community will once again gather in Sarasota to celebrate our 25th annual conference.
Can't make it in person? No problem. This event will also be streamed live for everyone who can't join us in Sarasota.
We have assembled a fabulous program that truly honors "The Montessori Way," including:
PLUS: Over 60 sessions and roundtable discussions...opportunities to network, share and center...our exhibit hall...entertainment...and much more!
Come early for all-day Intensives on Thursday:
Because we’re passionate about what we do, we tend to take judgment and criticism by others personally. We’re unsettled by conflict. We feel wounded. How then do we unburden ourselves of the baggage of resentment and antipathy? How do we mend broken relationships? We will work with the difficult art of caring for ourselves while also working to care for others.
- Forgive for Good...It's Time to Let Go of the Hurt with Jon Wolff and Fred Luskin
In this full day engagement experience, Raj Chawla will support fellow learners in co-creating the indicators of a thriving school community and leadership practices required to adapt to shifting conditions and unexpected circumstances.
- Creating the Prepared Social Justice Classroom: Who Are We and What Goes on the Shelves? with Dr. Cindy Acker
This is a workshop for the courageous - willing to consider the new tasks at hand in the classroom, and how we best prepare students for the life-changing work as peacemakers.
A detailed description of all sessions and presenters can be found here.
