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).
Below is a list of the programs we offered for the 2012-2013 Professional Excellence Seminars:
