PARENT PRESENTATION - January 28, 2017
On Saturday, January 28, 2017, Christopher Academy in collaboration with our parent association, CAPA, hosted a lecture, "Montessori In The Home," at Shackamaxon Country Club. Munir Shivji, Program Director at Cambridge Montessori School and Director of Cambridge Montessori Institute teacher education program, was the guest speaker.
Munir serves on the Executive Committee of the AMS (American Montessori Society) Board of Directors, chairs the AMS Development Committee, and is a member of the directorship committee. He is on the faculty of Center for Management, a AMS-affiliated teacher education program, and a key consultant for Educational Training and Consulting (ETC).
Parents, faculty, staff and guests enjoyed a complimentary breakfast followed by an engaging talk and power-point presentation by Mr. Shivji, who shared his inspirational advice and his many practical solutions to encourage positive behavior and to maintain peaceful, Montessori-like environments for families. Guests were invited to ask questions in a lively exchange during the talk, which proved to be most beneficial to parents and Montessori educators alike.
