Many of our teachers will be traveling to Chicago during Spring Break to attend the 2016 American Montessori Society National Conference. The conference provides the teachers opportunities to  attend a wide variety of workshops gathering information, hearing about new research  and honing skills specific to their age group, meet other Montessori teachers, tour other Montessori schools in the Chicagoland area and purchase new materials for their classrooms. The teachers will come back refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to share what they learned with their fellow teachers and students. A recap of their visit to the conference will appear in a future issue of the newsletter.
