What is normalization? For many new teachers, or even veteran teachers at the beginning of a new school year, "normalization" can seem like a Montessori myth. Does it really exist? How do you get there? How do you get that chaotic group of little people in your class to turn into those self-empowered, joyful, peaceful, eager little learners that the Montessori approach promises?

Please join us for this informative session about getting your school year started right and find hope that normalization can indeed be a reality! You will learn strategies to help you jumpstart the normalization process in your 3-6 Montessori classroom.

Jonathan Wolff is known for providing practical advice that can be implemented immediately. Whether you are drowning in the craziness that sometimes defines September, or you are feeling confident but looking for a few new ideas to add to your toolbox, then you will not want to miss this session.

"Jonathan's dynamic presentation succinctly illustrates how storytelling helps plant seeds of thoughtful behavior in class, and demonstrates powerful ways in which Guides can teach rather than correct, all through the year, to foster classroom Normalization."
