Positive Discipline for the Montessori Classroom – Practitioner’s Class

The Practitioner’s Class is a 2-Day training based on the book, Positive Discipline in the Montessori Classroom, by Jane Nelsen and Chip DeLorenzo. The class is designed to help participants learn how to implement respectful, effective and time-tested methods of classroom management that reflect our deepest values as Montessori educators: mutual respect, cooperation, responsibility, empathy and independence. 


Chip DeLorenzo, M.Ed., co-author, Positive Discipline in the Montessori Classroom


During this experiential training, new and veteran educators and administrators will learn how to:

  • Create a classroom community and social/emotional environment that will reduce misbehavior and foster normalization;
  • Develop clear and consistent practices amongst the adults in their classrooms to meet behavioral challenges respectfully and effectively;
  • Understand the roots of misbehavior in children;
  • Empower children to be respectful, cooperative, and responsible members of the classroom community;
  • Help children find a sense of belonging and significance in their classroom community;
  • Effectively train assistants in classroom management;
  • Develop school-wide practices that will help parents as well as teachers.
