Observation: The Keystone Skill for Montessori Educators

Tammy Oesting

$45 individuals, $35 for two or more from same school

Register today!

What is the number one strategy, or keystone skill, that you could improve to enhance your Montessori practice?  It’s the same tool Dr. Montessori used to develop her scientific pedagogy: observation. Join seasoned Montessori guide and teacher educator Tammy Oesting in harnessing your “scientist in the field” skill set to deepen your understanding of the child and bolster your classroom performance.

Renew your resolve to meet your students needs optimally by learning about the science behind why observation works.  Acquire new and strengthen known observation techniques that empower you to adapt your environment to improve student engagement and to better understand when to intervene with a student.  Find out how simple mindfulness training increases your ability to see the child and respond accordingly.

About the Presenter:  Tammy Oesting exemplifies lifelong learning.  As a Montessori teacher and trainer, her focus on answering “Why does this work?” has led her to adapt instructional strategies from current research into her Montessori practices.  This focus lead to the creation and global delivery of a training program for support staff in Montessori and a constant curiosity about how to optimize classroom performance with fidelity to Montessori pedagogy.

Although originally from the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington, and Alaska), her deep curiosity about just about everything has inspired her inner explorations and lifestyle as a nomadic world traveler.  American Montessori Society 3-6 and E1-2 certified, she loved her 17 years in the classroom; however, it was her years working with adults that lead her to serve the global Montessori community with professional development opportunities by founding ClassrooMechanics.  Her passions include issues of social justice, educating support staff, art education, neuroscience as applied to educational practices, and exploring the magnificence of the world.
