Target Audience: Teacher Educators

How can a teacher educator and an adult learner—both with diverse learning and teaching styles, experiences, and expectations—fuse as mentor and mentee? This workshop will help teacher educators define the roles and potential impact of both parties in Montessori mentorship relationships. Come explore “reverse mentoring” and other trust-building processes offering reflection for the student as well as transformative power for the mentor.
