helping teachers translate Montessori principles into practice in the classroom
For Montessori Elementary Guides (Ages 6-12)
If you have these questions, you are not alone.
We created this program because over the years in our work with Montessori professionals, we have heard variations of these questions over and over again.
"I think I'm doing everything they taught me in training but something seems to be missing."
We think the missing ingredient is experience, and that is what we hope to offer here. In p2p you can tap into the experience of Montessori professionals who have walked this path and figured out a few things. Learn the strategies, firmly rooted in Montessori principles, that have been tried and tested in the classroom environment.
We will dig in to the nuances of your classroom management questions. You will learn how an experienced Montessorian might tackle a particular scenario.
- What steps should you take to begin analyzing what is going on?
- What external factors might be at play here?
- What adjustments might you make to the environment?
- How might you change your own behavior?
- What words might be effective here?
- What kind of body language might you use?
- Should you get the families involved?
- And what long term goals should you keep in mind through the whole thing?
As we revisit basic Montessori principles and illustrate how they can be applied in different real classroom scenarios, you will leapfrog to new levels of understanding and begin to fill in the gaps in your application of the principles.
When you went through Montessori training, you received the tools you needed to be successful as a Montessori guide.
In p2p you will learn how to master the use of those tools.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long will I have access to the videos?
You will have continued access as long as you maintain your paid subscription. Videos and other content are not downloadable.
Will you show us how to present Montessori materials?
No. We will not cover material presentations or discuss curriculum. We expect that members will already be familiar with how Montessori materials are used and presented.
Will I have direct access to the presenters if I have a specific question or need clarification?
No. However, you will be able to submit follow up questions which will go into the pool from which presenters will select their presentation topics.
Will the certificate count towards the AMS Continuing Education requirement?
While we do not guarantee that our certificates will be accepted by any particular agency, many thousands of Montessori educators have received Trillium certificates over the past couple of years and we have not heard any feedback that the certificates were rejected. If you are counting on having the certificates approved, we recommend contacting your agency of choice before you sign up.
I am a homeschooler. Will this help me?
We will offer strategies based on the assumption that our members are in a Montessori classroom setting with groups of children. While many of the principles we discuss can be applied to a home setting, homeschoolers will need to adapt the advice for their own specific situations.
