online workshop series
Montessori schools are complex, dynamic, integrated ecosystems with students, teachers, parents/carers, leaders and board directors working towards a shared purpose. This specialised, online workshop series will focus on the role of school leaders and board directors using a Montessori lens to build an effective board and
negotiate crucial conversations.
