Benefits of Elevating Peace Education

As Montessorians, Peace Education is a familiar term. We employ it in our classrooms every day, and do our best to instill it within the children through every word, action, and lesson. Elevating Peace Education on Montessori Mastermind will show you how to take this subject to the next level and elevate your understanding of the community around you.

  • An incredible resource for Montessori Administrators, Faculty and Staff.

  • Take a deeper look at individual and cultural identity, as well as the impacts of unconscious bias.

  • Discover and implement culturally responsive teaching beyond the peace curriculum.
