November 6, 2012. Thank you all for your kind words of concern in the days following Hurricane Sandy. We’ve been deeply touched by the tightness of our community. We are thankful that the entire AMS staff is safe and sound, and we hope that you and your loved ones are too.

With the AMS office back up and running, we are now focused on facilitating connections between Montessori schools and teacher education programs affected by Sandy, and those who can help. If you know of a school or program that is in need of assistance, or if you can help, please post information on our Montessorians Helping Montessorians Web page.

We also invite your thoughts about how to talk to children about disasters, suggestions for resources, information about how your students and communities are coping/helping, and anything else that is relevant.
