Professional Excellence Seminars

In response to ongoing requests for a variety of seminars for Montessori educators who have already completed their credential requirements, Seton Montessori Institute offers Professional Excellence Seminars. These seminars are designed to provoke thinking, expand classroom horizons and to stimulate participants’ educational leadership with both children and adults.  Continuing education documentation is provided for each seminar.

The continuing education documentation is arranged through the American Montessori Society (AMS) as well as Gateways to Opportunity (Illinois Professional Development System).

Seton Montessori Institute would like to express our appreciation for the warm welcome provided to Dr. Sharon Maxwell during our recent Parent and Educator events. We plan to welcome Dr. Maxwell back after she completes her new book!

Seton Montessori Institute welcomed Sharon Maxwell, Ph.D., on Friday, March 21, 2014 for a parent talk to discuss ways of cultivating balance, respect and developmentally appropriate childhood environments in this Media-driven, Sexualized, Digital Culture.

iChild or I, Child: Maintaining Montessori Values in a Media-driven, Sexualized, Digital Culture

This thought provoking day with Sharon Maxwell, Ph. D., examined possibilities for cultivating balance and self-regulation in the face of those elements of contemporary culture that seem toxic to children’s healthy development, forging beyond ideas explored by previous Professional Excellence Series speakers Dr. Beth Grosshans, Dr. Steven Hughes, and Dr. John Chattin-McNichols.
