Professional Development Resources for Montessori Schools and Organizations

 

Before starting ClassrooMechanics, Aaron was in the technology and information industries, having worked both in the private sector and then in public libraries doing web development, research, reference work, and branch management. In our efforts to help schools, teachers and organizations deliver high-fidelity Montessori education to children and their families, he has worked along side Tammy to produce a variety of content including blog articles, book reviews, and infographics as well as curating and sharing a variety of articles and online resources that are of interest to Montessori educators. As a librarian, he can’t resist the desire to share great information. Below you will find descriptions of these various resources along with links to them so you can take advantage of them in your practice.

Infographics

 

These packs of infographics provide a visual, quick-reference collection of tools to help manage the daily operations of busy Montessori classrooms, schools, or homes. They collect a variety of tips and strategies for working with children, parents, teachers, documentation, communication, and other recurring daily activities and provide a reminder of best practices to help you stay true to the Montessori method.

Great Titles for Teachers

 

Great Titles for Teachers is a collection of book reviews written by us about titles that we have read in the course of our work. They are all recommended as being worthwhile reads that can help you transform your work and continue your learning. In the reviews, we give an overview of the title’s content, our opinion of it, and what might be of interest to Montessori teachers. We hope you find our recommendations useful if not entertaining, and that they stimulate your thought about and practice of teaching and school operations. The book image and title are linked to Amazon if you’re interested in purchasing a title. By using the links on the page, we will receive a small percentage of the book sale, but it will not affect your overall price.
