Description

SUPPORTING ELEMENTARY CHILDREN THROUGH CRISIS

Increasingly high percentages of children are experiencing levels of crisis that are significantly detrimental to healthy development. How do we support traumatized children in the school setting? What constitutes crisis in their young lives? With whom do we collaborate? How do we better prepare ourselves and our environments for this essential work? We will delve into case studies and in the context of Montessori pedagogy and contemporary research we’ll consider each of these questions. By doing so, our point of departure in responding to a child in crisis is from a place of deeper knowledge, understanding, and compassion and can offer every child increased access to a richer and more meaningful education.

Liesl originally came to Cornerstone as a guide with ten years of experience in public charter Montessori environments, to start the elementary program in 2011. Liesl holds her AMI Elementary Certificate from the Montessori Center of Minnesota and her public school teaching license, K-6 with a specialty in 5-8 Science, 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 in Chicago as a cognitive development specialist. Later, she taught parenting classes and Natural Childbirth. Liesl found Montessori through her three now-grown Montessori children who are an inspiration to her everyday, and who fuel her passion to increase access for all children, to high quality Montessori education.
