* Recheck/refresh this schedule on Saturday morning to see what rooms your desired sessions are in. We continue to change room assignments based on the level of interest in each session.

* Use one seat and move to the middle. Every seat will be used in the auditorium and likely in many breakout sessions as well. Please allow as many to sit as possible by using one seat and moving to the middle of a row of seats so others may sit down without climbing over you.

* Be patient. No matter how hard we try, history tells us that some breakout sessions will end up being standing room only for fill up completely.  Please understand that we are trying our very best to make this a productive and enjoyable learning opportunity for you and as many of your fellow Montessorians as possible. Your patience will help the most people receive the most benefit from this conference.

Sportsmanship is SEL

The Montessori philosophy is well known for developing social and emotional learning skills. What about co-curricular classes? For physical education, I have some good news. Sportsmanship is SEL! However, sportsmanship is hard to teach correctly because the concept is tough to define. Many students know "how" to be a good sport but don't know "what it is." We will define sportsmanship throughout the student's time in school and match it to the social-emotional sensitive periods of development.
