Teacher transformation – living the principles of Montessori

Break-out session Sunday 7 October 10.30-11.30

The passion needed to remain as a joyful Montessorian comes from within. It is ignited and kept alive by our active pursuit to grow, both as an individual and as a guide to our students. The concept of lifelong learning applies equally  to the adults in the environment and to their healthy quest for self-awareness and growth.

This break-out session will offer exercises that help us become aware of what motivates us to think the way we do, and to take notice of our deeper thoughts and realign them with our life goals. The session is fully interactive so come with an open heart, an open mind, and ready to share.
