Meeting the Needs of the Liberated Child:​

Saint, Scientist, and Servant

​with Koren Clark


Tuesday, November 10th, 2020

7:00-8:30 PM PST






This is a virtual workshop. It will take place over Zoom. Please note the day and time as it differs from our usual Saturday morning workshops. 

This workshop illuminates how Maria Montessori's charge for the Montessori guide to be a Saint, Scientist and a Servant provides them with the framework for the anti-bias lens necessary to nurture the liberated child.

​"The vision of the teacher should be at once precise like that of the scientist, and spiritual like that of the saint. The preparation for science and the  preparation for sanctity should form a new soul, for the attitude of the teacher should be at once positive, scientific and spiritual." (Montessori, 1917 Advanced Montessori Method)​

  • The Saint- Clearing your mirror to reflect light on the Montessori child.
  • The Scientist- Shifting the lens to observe and nurture the child's identity.
  • The Servant- adapting your service to the needs of children.
