  • Friday, May 17, 2019 is our Annual Big CCMA PD Day. Plan to join us for a great day together at Northstar Montessori School in Mississauga, ON.

 

Topic: Creating A Culture of Well-Being in Montessori

 Creating a culture of well-being and gratitude will help us achieve excellence in our Montessori schools, community, and in our own             lives.

In this engaging talk by Jim Moss, Chief Happiness Officer of Plasticity Labs, we will uncover ways to build positive communication,            foster a culture of gratitude, and tools to help bring your best-self to your Montessori practice, children, families, colleagues, and                  school.

With insightful and practical takeaways, case studies and the most current scientific research, Jim’s presentation will demonstrate              the benefits of a positive culture, investing in your well-being and the well-being of others, and its impact it can have on the                                Montessori community.

More details and the formal invitation and registration details will follow shortly. Jim will conduct the full morning and we will break out into facilitated discussions by age or by school for an hour after lunch.
