Author Jane Nelson Speaking May 5 – Montessori Academy

Jane Nelsen, author the Positive Discipline books, will be speaking at our school on Thursday, May 5th, at 7:00 pm. The topic is “Raising Self-Reliant Children in a Self-Indulgent World”, and Dr. Nelsen will be focusing on independence and the benefits of self-reliance for children. Her talk will include all age ranges through adolescence.

Dr. Nelsen does charge a speaking fee, so we are charging just enough for tickets in order to pay her fee ($15 per ticket). We have already offered tickets to our parents and we still have some availability, so we would love to extend an invitation to any Montessorian that would like to attend.

You can purchase tickets with a credit card by calling Ms. Terra in the front office at (801) 566-6962, or you can mail us a check, or call and reserve some tickets and then pay at the door. It seems that we all get so busy from day-today that we rarely see each other, and we would welcome the opportunity for our teachers to have a chance to associate together with you and your staff.

We will have some refreshments and time after the presentation to mingle. We hope to see some of you here!
