An Evening with Biff Maier:

The Essence of Montessori

2021 AMS Living Legacy


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

The outcomes of a Montessori education result from the full nature of the experience. Montessori materials are optimal, but it's the context and the intent that makes the difference. So, yes, we can teach Montessori anywhere—even in the woods!
