This workshop will invite Upper Elementary guides who work in the public sector to share the challenges of merging the Montessori Method with state and local requirements. Join a roundtable discussion and connect with a community of support as we work together to solve problems with the developmental needs of the second-half-of-the–Second Plane child in mind.
