I am a Montessori teacher with 27 years experience in 6-12 year-old classrooms. I've also been a Montessori teacher trainer for 12 years. I'm currently working with Montessori Australia to help bring education in Australia into the 21st century.
Of course education reform won't work unless parents are on the same page. I'm also a Positive Discipline facilitator. I LOVE this approach to relationship building through role play and Socratic questioning, and it's so consistent with Montessori!
Currently Director of Education Services at Montessori Australia. I organise workshops, conferences and training for Australia's peak body.
I have also been a Principal and Assistant Principal at a couple of Montessori schools in California and Australia.
And I've taught in 6-9 and 9-12 classrooms in the Boston and San Francisco Bay areas in the US and on the Sunshine Coast of Australia for 27 years.
And lastly I've been a teacher trainer for 12 or more years.
