Montessori Leaders Symposium

 Professional Development AMS Panama Montessori Leaders Symposium

January 18 – 20, 2019
Dreams Delight Resorts & Spas
Playa Bonita, Panama

The Montessori Leaders Symposium brings together trailblazers from schools and teacher education programs for in-depth professional development, networking, and the opportunity to dive deeper into our roles as Montessori leaders. By gathering as an intimate, passionate community of Montessori leaders, we can engage in the meaningful dialogues that advance the Montessori Movement.

The 2019 event will include roundtable discussions, breakout sessions, and a plenary session with education visionary, activist, and featured speaker, Sam Chaltain—who will also join us for a special dinner on Saturday evening.

Taking part in the Montessori Leaders Symposium will earn you 14 hours of continuing professional development.

The setting is the Dreams Delight Playa Bonita Panama, an all-inclusive resort boasting the closest beach to Panama City, along with rainforest walkways, swimming pools, and stunning views—an ideal location for inspiring the generative conversations, exploration, and discovery that will unfold during our time together.
