Keynote Speaker: Crystal Dahlmeier

Keynote Title: Courage, Brains and Heart Unlocking the Power of Montessori Education

As Montessori teachers, we know the impact that the Montessori prepared environment can have on children, families, community and ourselves.  As we teach, however, we often face obstacles that challenge our commitment and beliefs.  

Crystal Dahlmeier has taught children and Montessori teachers internationally and has studied and researched the process of transformational growth.  Through illustration and story she will share the stages of professional development, examine strategies that promote transformative growth, and identify professional challenges we face as we become ‘The New Teacher’ that Montessori describes in her 1946 Lectures.

Listen to Crystal Dahlmeier talk about the Prepared Environment on the Xavier University Montessori Podcast.

Location: Northern Kentucky Convention Center

The conference will be held at Northern Kentucky Convention Center, located in Covington, KY.
