Parenting Classes

I offer a six-week course based on the work of Montessori,
Piaget and Erickson. Translating the work of these
theorists into a user-friendly, hands-on course, families
can learn strategies to successfully accompany their
children to maturity.

School Consultation

I work with schools and parents to incorporate and
strengthen Montessori's central insights into everyday
life at home and school. Presentations can be adapted
to the school's individual specifications including staff
in-service, parent night talks and classroom observation
and feedback.

I also collaborate with my colleague, Janet Engel for
many presentations. Please contact me for further information.
