Trevor Eissler, author of Montessori Madness: A Parent to Parent Argument for Montessori Education is returning to Chicago next week with a brand new workshop, iMontessori: Making Montessori Personal. In the spirit of his easy-to-understand book, Mr. Eissler's workshops combine stories about his real life experiences as a Montessori parent along with his informed and persuasive discussion as to why Montessori education is so relevant and important for every child.
Montessori parents and teachers nationwide have been meeting to discuss and pass around one of the most accessible books about Montessori in years, Montessori Madness. Now, Chicago parents and teachers can meet author Trevor Eissler and engage in his new workshop, iMontessori. This engaging two-hour workshop will focus on creating an approachable real life connection and relevance to the principles of the Montessori Method. Mr. Eissler will discuss how many of the ideas of Montessori like mixed age classrooms, the prepared environment and internal rewards provide the basis for success later in life.
