Professional Development


Professional Development can be expensive. Many schools find it difficult to send the faculty, administrators, or boards off to conferences or retreat centers for renewal and inspiration.

The Montessori Foundation staff members are experts in bringing these services to your school, as workshops, weekend retreats, teleconferences, or live two-way video conferences at a fraction of the cost.

All of our programs and services are specifically designed for the needs of the staff at your school!

With modern internet communications, more and more schools are finding the least expensive way to get focused advice, or even to have someone from our team meet with your teachers, staff, parents, or board, is by two-way video using the free Skype video conference service.

We even record the session, from start to finish and post it in a secure area of our website, where you can replay it or download it to your computer.
