While all teachers benefit from the support and guidance of a coach, the needs of novice teachers are unique. The Montessori Coach is the essential figure and mentor in preparing the school environment to support new teachers by:

  • promoting a practice of learning and inquiry,
  • observing and meeting with new teachers to support their practice, and 
  • facilitating their understanding of Montessori Philosophy and Pedagogy, thus taking theory to practice for successful implementation.

This workshop is a bi-weekly 1-hr convening for NCMPS-trained coaches, designed to strengthen our capacity to support novice teachers. Within this practice group, we will build connection and community, share and collaborate, refine skills and tools, and learn new techniques.

Katie Mosquera will host these one-hour sessions on the following Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30pm ET:
