Coaches Training – March 2021
The NCMPS Coaches Training is designed for adults preparing to do coaching work in schools, and leadership teams who will be working with them.
Montessori Coaching is a holistic framework for supporting Montessori teachers in classrooms, and for partnering with school leadership teams to help the whole school grow towards an environment supporting human development and flourishing. This seven-week online training prepares coaches to support effective, equitable Montessori classroom practice and to work with school leaders to grow and strengthen developmentally supportive practices throughout the school, including the whole-school environment, family engagement, Lesson Study, Child Study, and more.
Coaches Training includes videos, readings, and seven live sessions. This course meets on the following Tuesdays from 6:15-7:30pm ET.
