For success in life depends in every case on self-confidence and the knowledge of one’s own capacity and many-sided powers of adaption. The consciousness of knowing how to make oneself useful, how to help mankind in many ways, fills the soul with noble confidence, with almost religious dignity. The feeling of independence must be bound to the power to be self-sufficient, not a vague form of liberty deducted from the help afforded by the gratuitous benevolence of others.
Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence (Appendix A: Erdkinder)
In this talk, we visit Montessori's guiding principles to help parents and young people navigate through the turbulent periods on the path to adulthood.
Dr. Montessori’s theories on human development are intriguing and still progressive in the field of education. If you have been promising yourself a deeper dive into these revelations, now is your chance.
Our monthly series of online workshops are hosted by AMI trainer, Cheryl Ferreira. The one-hour sessions of exploration and discovery will enrich classroom application. Although aimed at Montessori teachers and assistants, everyone interested in a richer understanding of Dr. Montessori’s writings is welcome.
Sessions take place on the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm and each is independent - attend all or just one.
