Vital to your chosen career path is continued personal development; there isn’t a profession that does not demand regular updating and contact with experts in the field. AMI/USA endorses this commitment as well. Professional development workshops for teachers, heads of school, and classroom assistants are offered annually at The Montessori Experience: Refresher Course & Workshops held on Presidents’ Day weekend. This is an excellent way to examine current educational structures and strategies as well as delve deeper into your knowledge and understanding of Montessori pedagogy.
The event will take place at the Renaissance Orlando at Seaworld – click here to view the hotel’s website.
After stumbling through a harrowing year and a half with unprecedented and unfamiliar challenges, our commitment to the child has been given a heightened sense of urgency as we look toward an increasingly uncertain future. The only thing we know for certain is that we are resilient and we are creative. We adapted to changing circumstances in order to continue educating our children and each other. We found ways to connect with our communities virtually, staying present in each other’s lives. Above all, we stayed the course — continuing to believe in the peaceful future Maria Montessori envisioned through the education of children:
“Times have changed, and science has made great progress, and so has our work; but our principles have only been confirmed, and along with them our conviction that [humanity] can hope for a solution to its problems, among which the most urgent are those of peace and unity, only by turning its attention and energies to the discovery of the child and to the development of the great potentialities of the human personality in the course of its formation.”
Dr. Maria Montessori | From the foreword to The Discovery of the Child
It is with this in mind that we invite you to join us February 18-22, 2021 in Orlando and virtually for Beyond Resilience: Creatively Redesigning Our Future. We are excited to put the ideas of resilience and creativity into action with an event different in format from those we’ve seen in years past. We hope the sessions will inspire and equip you with creative energy and tools for continuing to practice resiliency in your school community and beyond.
We are so grateful for the skills, knowledge and experience of the AMI/USA community. Your unique perspectives are valuable. We are extending our annual call for proposals differently this year. In addition to inviting submissions for The Montessori Experience, we are expanding this call on a rolling basis for different types of programming throughout the year.
