What workshop participants are saying…

I want to thank you for the wonderfully encouraging newsletters that I find on a regular basis in my inbox.  I am saving every single one of them.  I tell my parents and teachers alike to subscribe to them, they are that helpful.  Please know that this is such a valuable contribution to us as we work to help the younger generation find their place in this world they live in. I love the online workshops, too.  I hope you will continue to contribute to our efforts.  You have very interesting and challenging insights on the many facets of  “Life in the Montessori Classroom.”

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.

This has been eye opening for me!

Thank you for helping unlock this spelling mystery!

We have spent so much money on various curriculums and seen very little results.

My oldest daughter is gifted with imagination and strong vocabulary and loves to write stories, but her spelling is so inventive that they are sometimes hard to read for anyone but myself.

I am now confident she will take the spelling challenge and help herself succeed.
