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).

Practical Life, Peace Education & The Universal Child
with Carolina Gomez del Valle and Maria Loreto Wille
Domestic rituals involving home, food and community are at the root of the Practical Life curriculum. While each culture has its own unique traditions in these respects, sharing our traditions through practical life activity can provide a powerful experience of what we share in common.
Our guests joined Carolina Gomez del Valle and Maria Loreto Wille for a dinner-time exploration of practical life, peace education and the universal child! Enjoy these photos of the delight adults shared as they experienced, shared and engaged in Practical Life.
