Plan to attend our Spring Workshop on Saturday, April 20th, 9:00am – 12:30pm, with Sarah Lauer, experienced educator and presenter from the Parent Support Center PDX, at Far Horizons Montessori School in Eugene.
This workshop will share practical and useful discipline skills you can use in the classroom with children of all ages. Sarah will discuss how to nurture healthy emotional growth, offer tools to avoid power struggles, and explore ways adults often sabotage their own attempts at providing caring discipline. She will help us develop ways to empower children to resolve their own disputes and guide us in listening for a child's inner reality. The techniques will aid us in building positive relationships with children and can be incorporated into your classroom management practices right away!
Sarah's work is based upon JoAnne Nordling's book, Taking Charge, which will be available for purchase at the workshop, or you can buy it in advance and come prepared! OMA will offer light refreshments at the workshop. We will issue Certificates for 3.5 hours of registry training credit.
