I am so honored to have Bess Wuertz as one of the presenters in the 2017 Trillium Montessori Homeschool Summit. Bess is the Montessori columnist for Practical Homeschooling Magazine. She is also the founder of the Montessori Homeschooling Facebook Group which has over 17,000 members.
Bess fell in love with the Montessori Method over eight years ago, shortly after her first child was born. She now home educates her three children utilizing Montessori with the support of her husband. Bess blogs about her journey at: www.GraceAndGreenPastures.com
In her work over the years with her own homeschooling, and with supporting others on the Montessori homeschooling journey, Bess has observed a few common traps that people fall into when attempting to implement Montessori in their homeschool. While some of these obstacles can seem insurmountable, they can be overcome with a little bit of due diligence.
In her presentation, Bess walks us through 10 of the most common pitfalls she has seen, and offers invaluable advice to help you overcome them or even bypass them in some cases. Whether you are brand new to homeschooling or somewhere further down the path, being aware of these potential pitfalls can help ensure a smoother running experience. The topics she explores include personal preparation, normalization, and overspending and are applicable to all families with school aged children.
Check out the video preview above for a glimpse at pitfall#8 and her tips on how to overcome it. Then please join us for the rest of the 50 minute presentation in the Homeschool Summit coming up in January, 2017!
