"Montessori Maneuvers": Living with Children and One Another in Community
How well do you support the graces of your community? How well do you choose your words and actions? Wouldn’t you like to have your toolbox filled with options as you build community and support all the humans, young and old that are a part of your life? Montessori Maneuvers will connect us all to the relationships that we build in community with one another and with the children. We will talk about how we set ourselves and others around us for successful, positive interactions. We will support the skill of observation of children and one another in our homes, schools, classrooms and beyond in such a way that prevention can truly be our best medicine. ~ ~ ~ BethAnn Slater is an AMI 3-6 Trainer and has worked with children and families for over 30 years.

She truly believes that living Montessori as authentically as possible in all that we do is the answer to promoting world peace and contributing to a new orientation of humankind.
