The Value of Professional Growth, $50 with lunch

Saturday, September 28, 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 pm

Presented by Mary MacIntosh

Whether their title is Director or Directress, Guide, or Teacher, a Montessori professional is the key to your program's success.

 

The beginning Montessori teacher brings enthusiasm and a vision of Montessori magic to the reality of the classroom.  They require support and mentoring as they balance the Montessori ideal with their developing practices.  The experienced teacher needs support for continued professional growth to avoid habits that may overlook the essence of the individual child.  

This workshop will explore teacher evaluation and professional development models to help develop teachers that are motivated, supported and prepared to work with today's parents and children.  A reflective evaluation process will identify professional goals that are meaningful for teachers and give administrators focused areas for support and assessment. Research indicates that model based on reflective inquiry and interview protocols foster teacher and school improvement. Join us to learn about and discuss these models with other school leaders in the Montessori community.
