Let’s Talk About Re-Enrolment: Boost your retention through all ages and levels

December 12, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm

COMPLIMENTARY ONLINE EVENT FOR CCMA MEMBERS

  • Is the “real world” just an excuse to go to another school?
  • Is parent education working to keep your students enrolled year to year?
  • Do you want your third-year students to complete their cycle and stay on?

As you are thinking about enrolment for next year, join Regina Lulka and Tracy Grisdale from Montessori Partners for an insightful exploration of ideas for boosting re-enrolment and retention rates within your school. While they will focus on the completion of each cycle, they will also share strategies and resources to encourage your students to come back year after year until they complete the highest level your school offers.

Please click here to register. You will receive a confirmation email with information about joining the meeting after you’ve registered.


ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

Tracy Grisdales focus on defining and creatively meeting the challenges of leadership has been consistently evident throughout her career. She has been a teacher at both Casa and elementary levels, principal at two large privately owned Montessori schools, board member of a large not-for-profit Montessori school, past president of the Canadian Association of Montessori Teachers (CAMT), verifier for the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA) and a teacher educator in two MACTE (Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education) accredited Teacher Education programs at both the Casa and elementary levels.

In each of these roles, Tracy has committed fully to expanding her capacity to lead, involve and inspire in order to unlock the potential present in schools, educators, children, and parents. She has been instrumental in enhancing Elementary Montessori programs, establishing strong professional development, and enhancing parent/school communication.

Her training as a coach further expanded her skills to support, engage and explore creative solutions to the challenges faced by both individuals and schools in the Montessori community.

Regina Lulka began her Montessori life as a mother of two Casa children. This led to a life-long career working with children, parents, teachers, and school leaders.

Regina’s very rich life in Montessori has included Head of School at the Montessori Jewish Day School, member of several boards, past president of the Canadian Association of Montessori Teachers (CAMT), past chair of the Board of the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA), verifier for the Canadian Council of Montessori Administrators (CCMA), member of Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) accreditation teams and lecturer on Montessori Pedagogy at three MACTE accredited Teacher Education programs at both the Casa and elementary levels.

As a sought-after speaker, Regina has conducted numerous professional presentations. Her work as a verifier and as a member of accreditation teams has inspired Regina to deepen her studies of the value of observation to create optimal Montessori environments. Her work with educators, parents, and administrators in developing, implementing, and assessing in-class observation programs has inspired, enhanced and strengthened Montessori education in the classroom and throughout the school.
