Book a Chat with Munir

AUGUST 7, 2020—On Monday, August 31, in celebration of Maria Montessori’s 150th birthday, AMS executive director Munir Shivji will be dedicating his entire day to phone conversations with members of our community.

The plan to fill the landmark day by getting to know who you are and what’s on your mind was inspired by and pays tribute to Dr. Montessori’s dictum: “We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”

Munir will be there to listen, to learn, to answer your questions—and probably to ask some of his own.

As there are only so many calls that will fit into the 8 hours during which they will take place, slots will fill up quickly. Thus, if you are interested in pursuing one, we encourage you to reserve the time immediately via the sign-up link at the bottom of this page.


A day of scheduled phone chats is an experiment for us. To help ensure that things go smoothly, we’ve drawn up some guidelines:

  • Calls must be scheduled in advance.
  • U.S. phone numbers only, please.
  • Munir will call you at the appointed time, so please be sure to be available.
  • If you don’t pick up when Munir calls, unfortunately, he will not be able to try again later, as the day will tightly scheduled.
  • We’re allowing up to 15 minutes per conversation.
  • We love knowing about your products and services, but please do not use the call to make a sale. To pitch a sales idea to us, you can email us at
  • Aside from the above, please feel welcome to talk about whatever you like.

In booking a chat with Munir, you are agreeing to his sharing the following information publicly: The topic of your discussion, including thoughts and questions raised; the first letter of your first name; and the state (or territory) where you live.
