Welcome!

Get ready to be a part of something incredible! We can't contain our excitement as we invite you to join us in shaping a meaningful Montessori experience for schools not only across the country but also around the globe!

Introducing the AIM School Wide Montessori Summit – a four-day extravaganza designed to equip Montessori teachers and administrators with practical, invaluable resources. Our aim? To empower everyone, from infant-toddler educators to school leaders, with the knowledge and tools to implement successful strategies within their classrooms and school communities.

Right here on this page, we've curated a treasure trove of resources to make your journey as a speaker as smooth as can be. We've covered the bases to address any questions you might have. But if, by some chance, something remains unanswered, don't hesitate to drop me an email at carolyn@aimmontessori.org

As a speaker, you'll not only share your expertise but also gain an all-access pass to the Summit for yourself and your school community! 

Let's make this Montessori Summit an unforgettable experience together. 


 How It'll All Work

Let’s do a quick run through of how the whole thing will work.  

The event will run from Monday, January 29 – Thursday, February 1st with 5-7 pre-recorded presentations released each day.  These presentations will each be 1 hour in length.  While the presentations are pre-recorded, there will be a live panel discussion at 5:00pm MST each evening of the Summit, where the speakers for each day come together and answer viewer questions.  

Leading up to the Summit, we will provide you with two weeks’ worth of promotional marketing.  You’ll be provided with email copy, social media copy and graphics to share with your followers and promote your presentation and the Summit as a whole.  

As an active participant we hope that you will share the Summit and encourage folks to attend!

Presentation

Now, let's turn our attention to your forthcoming presentation – a pivotal component of our Summit!

We kindly request your preparation of a one-hour presentation that will bring significant and practical value to the Montessori community. Our overarching aim is to ensure that attendees depart with actionable steps they can readily apply within their classrooms and school communities.

It's important to note that our attendees come to us already well-versed in the Montessori philosophy. Consequently, our objective is to provide them with a fresh perspective on materials, lessons, or approaches that will invigorate their practices.

You have the creative liberty to choose from the following presentation formats:

  • Slides (with a provided template)
  • A slide-free, personable presentation
  • A blend of both approaches


Your presentation should encompass the following key elements:

  • Introduction: Begin by offering a brief introduction of yourself, sharing your Montessori background, and your journey within the field. This establishes a connection between you and our audience.

  • Topic Overview: Provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of your chosen topic, setting the stage for what attendees can anticipate in terms of learning and exploration.

  • Valuable Insights: Importantly, furnish your presentation with substantive, valuable information that adds depth and value to your chosen topic.

  • Actionable Steps: Equally essential is the provision of specific, actionable steps that attendees can readily implement in their classrooms or school communities based on the knowledge you've imparted.
  • Resources:  As part of our all access pass your presentation will need to be accompanied by one or more downloadable resources.  These resources should be created by you and related to the content of your presentation.  They can be printable materials, workbooks, additional recordings, courses, or another creative resource.


We eagerly anticipate your presentation and the positive impact it will undoubtedly have on our attendees!


Live Participation

Lastly, we kindly request your presence during a live Zoom session from 5:00 to 6:00 PM MST on the evening of your presentation release.

During this session, you'll have the opportunity to participate in a moderated panel discussion alongside the other presenters for that day. This engaging session is designed to foster connections among presenters and provide a platform for you to field questions from Summit attendees. It's an excellent chance for interactive dialogue and knowledge exchange within our community. We look forward to your active participation in this enriching panel discussion.
