Elevating & Empowering Support Staff
Sunday, March 15 | 08:00 AM - 09:15 AM
Session 7: Workshops
Support staff are the glue and glitter of our school communities. However, when it comes to Montessori training, they often get the short end of the stick. This workshop will provide tools, templates, and strategies—from a streamlined onboarding process to a shared mentorship program—to fully support support staff. You’ll walk away with information to help these key players build their knowledge, empowerment, and engagement which, in turn, will reduce turnover and increase quality student and family interactions.
