3M is committed to high-quality, continuous education for ALL adult learners to support the growth and development of ALL children. Choose from a variety of topics about the child, the adult and the environment. Each presentation is carefully woven with Dr. Montessori's wisdom, connecting to our evolving inquiries of today. But don't turn the channel just incase you're not a Montessorian. There's something for everyone!
"3M's seminars/professional development/workshops are so helpful for my personal growth and also how I approach ABAR education with my students. Having a truly safe space to speak without fear of judgment is so important. I feel valued and validated when I share my thoughts. Sarah brings so much of her personal experience into the dialogue, and that authenticity gives us a perspective that we would not usually find. I'd recommend her workshops to anyone! It's a great place to practice being brave and transparent; I've gained some strength of my own in being able to share and ask questions. I love that we understand that being uncomfortable is not necessarily a negative thing; Sarah reminds us that being willing to sit in that uncomfortable place lets us know we're growing and opening our hearts and minds to change.

"Everything was really important and open minding. I really appreciate the hard work. What made me join your [workshop] was the fact that I was trying to understand how to insert this subject in the kids' life, and I wanted to see how the school is doing this as well. I am from Brazil, my husband from France. And now we are living here. Our kids were born in Brazil, and they were 3 yo and 4 months old when we moved here. We are still adapting here, in my point of view. And so, our house is absorbing American life style from what the kids are bringing from their social lives. But we are 99% of a Brazilian/French family, speaking Portuguese, reading books, listening to music, and eating food from Brazil and France. Here, in the neighborhood, I don't see a lot of diversity, which in Brazil is our life. Life in Brazil is a mix of Native, African, European, and other cultures and races. For me, it is really hard to understand how to make the diversity part of the life without being an experience. So yes, this neighborhood makes me feel concerned about this. I am willing to help [3M] to bring the diversity to the school life. I think that, through bringing culture, we can show the kids how wonderful the world is, because of the diversity."
