Keynote – Toko Blais Odorczuk
Title: Supporting Transitions in Montessori Communities
Navigating transitions is an important lifelong skill. In schools, times of transition can create stress and anxiety for the child, his or her family, and the teacher(s). Preparation for necessary change allows the process to become clear, manageable, and many times even enjoyable. This keynote will explore the many transitions that the child, and consequently the family, experience over the course of childhood, and how we manage these transitions through preparation of the environment and ourselves as teachers and administrators.Breakout Sessions Info Post Conference Survey
