Description

Support Services and Adaptations for All Children in Montessori Elementary Environments

Are you passionately committed to a richer and more meaningful education for the children you serve, regardless of need? Of course you are! Successfully meeting the varying needs of all children in our Montessori environments, though, is no small feat. How do we better prepare our selves and our environments for this essential work? With whom do we collaborate? How do we choose and integrate necessary adaptations and specialists while maintaining the integrity of the Montessori approach – and the resulting experience for the child? Grounded in the context of Montessori pedagogy and contemporary research, we’ll delve into case studies as we consider these questions. The workshop is appropriate for administrators, guides, specialists, and other support staff. You will leave with ideas about how to support individual children and how to integrate services and specialists. The goal of the workshop is that your point of departure in responding to a child in crisis or with significant challenges be from a place of deeper knowledge, understanding, and compassion - and happens in the context of well-developed systems that support your work!


Presented by: Liesl Taylor, Director of Elementary Pedagogy, Cornerstone Montessori Elementary School

Liesl Heide Taylor came to Cornerstone as a guide with ten years experience in public charter Montessori environments, to join the team founding the elementary program in 2011. Liesl holds her AMI Elementary Certificate from the Montessori Center of Minnesota and her Elementary State Teaching license from St. Scholastica. Liesl’s undergraduate degree is in Psychology and Family Studies from St. Olaf College. Prior to her Montessori career, Liesl worked in Early Intervention as a Cognitive Development Specialist. Liesl found Montessori through her three now-grown children, who sparked her passion to increase access for all children to high quality Montessori programs.
