Online Global community conference for MONTESSORI ASSISTANTS & GUIDES “The Most Essential Partnership”

14 May 2022, 16:30 - 22:00

Free

WHAT IS THE CONFERENCE ABOUT?

Kindness, manners, harmony, social cohesion or emotional security is not something a child can pick off the shelf and work with. The essential things are shaped by the relationship adults have with each other, with children, and with the environment. Social interactions are the lifeblood of a smoothly functioning classroom. The relationship between assistant and guide has a profound and long-lasting effect on the quality of a child’s development. “This most essential partnership” sets the tone for all that happens in the Montessori classroom.

The role of the assistant is often misunderstood and misperceived. This misunderstanding has the potential to not only disrupt the relationship between the two adults in the classroom, but also to disrupt the classroom and affect all the children in it. First and foremost, the guide and assistant are partners on a shared journey towards a common vision. It’s great when they respect each other’s skills and talents, empower each other, and each enables the other’s best work. Clarifying roles and expectations, agreeing on classroom routines or preparing the environment together contribute to this deeply. Each pair is unique and seeks its own format.

This conference aims to promote the quality of adults working together in the classroom and to awaken discussion around the field of assistants. How and where does this vital relationship begin? What is important to keep in mind to make it work well? What are the specifics of the two roles? What is the responsibility of the guide? What can assistants do and what, on the other hand, must they definitely not do? And why do we place so much emphasis on the value of communication?

It is the quality of this relationship that we must take our example from: two people working together, constant allies, one giving strength to the other, each respecting the talents and abilities of the other, one making possible the work of the other through working well in his own right.
