A reflection of Carla Foster’s visit to the Otkrivatel Montessori School. Carla wrote a nice letter to our students and our team, whose work she was observing and to whom she gave valuable advice and positive feedback.
The first day of the visit of Carla Foster, one of the leading and most respected AMI Elementary trainers, she dedicated to a seminar with Otkrivatel’s parents.
We are extremely excited to welcome Carla Foster to our school. The parents event was attended by all parents and it was of great importance in learning about the Montessori method and the elementary child. Carla offered great insight on how to be a parent of a Montessori Elementary child.
