Over the past 20 years, I’ve learned that there is no escaping change. It’s an unavoidable part of life. Sometimes change can be worrying — scary even — but it doesn’t have to be. Experience has taught me that change can work to our advantage if we anticipate it instead of running from it. In fact, I’ve learned to not only be prepared for change but to welcome it. Even when change seems difficult, it can bring new opportunities and ideas if we are flexible and open to them. And when we take control and initiate change ourselves, the benefits can be remarkable.
As part of NAMC’s anniversary celebration, I have been asked to share 20 lessons that stand out in my experience of providing Montessori teacher training programs worldwide over the past 20 years. We are happy to share the next tip in our series that we are presenting over the next few weeks. I hope you find some of these ideas helpful in your own Montessori journey!
