* 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.

DuPage Montessori School
Naperville, Il
I have been the Head Upper Elementary and Middle School Teacher at DuPage Montessori School since 2009. I also enjoy working as a college instructor at Oakton Community College in Des Plaines, Il., where I teach courses in World Religions and World Mythologies. Mentoring students and working to build qualities of resilience and perseverance are critical elements to my teaching practice. While I do much of this work in the classroom, I also serve as our Upper El and Middle school Gym teacher, which enables me to connect physical activities to this daily work, thus engaging the whole student. I teach various skills, activities, and games in ways that demonstrate—win, lose, or draw––that persevering through difficulty is worth the effort.
