While I love learning and taking classes in general, completing professional development courses was often a chore and the material too basic and irrelevant to my work as a Montessori educator. I was so thrilled when I came across Maren Schmidt’s course offerings and now I take advantage of her insightful online courses, newsletters and webinars. I always find myself taking copious notes and applying what I’ve learned immediately to my toddler environment.
I also forward and post her Kids Talk Newsletters so my student’s parents can benefit from her practical knowledge backed by experience and education. Maren is smart, funny and helpful I tell all my teacher friends to take advantage of her offerings.
