Going Up! The Montessori Elevator Pitch

Saturday, March 24 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM

Presenters: Deb Cyrier, Lisa Vukmirovich, Kurran Strunk

Target Audience: All

How many times have you enthusiastically begun to describe Montessori, only to find listeners glazing over when you say things like “normalization, “sensitive periods,” or “Cosmic Education”? In this workshop, you’ll create a jargon-free 30-second speech about Montessori—short enough for you to convey in the course of an elevator ride!—that will exude confidence and clarity whenever you’re asked about what you do.
