An Evening with Michael and D'Neil Duffy
The staff at Phoenix Montessori Academy cordially invites you, your staff and parent body to an extraordinary evening with the amazing Michael and D’Neil Duffy. Mr. Duffy, formerly a journalist, is a Montessori consultant and elementary faculty member of the Center for Montessori Teacher Education/New York and Instituto Nueva Escuela, a Montessori teacher education program in Puerto Rico. Mrs. Duffy began as a traditional teacher in public and parochial schools before making the move to the Montessori Method. Together they have co-authored 3 books, including Love of Learning: Supporting Intrinsic Motivation in Montessori Students. While they are champions of the Montessori philosophy, their objective is always to encourage children to find joy in the classroom and educators to strive to create learning environments to facilitate that. Clearly, regardless of our individual teaching approach, be it Montessori, integrated or traditional, we would all do well with a dose of inspiration from these dynamic speakers.
So please spread the word and plan to join us Friday February 8, 2013 from 6:30p-8:00p at Phoenix Montessori Academy located 17609 Old Statesville Rd, Cornelius. Cost is $10 per person. Fees are entirely for the Duffys’ expenses. Well worth it for the prospect of staff development and parent involvement in the challenge of Elementary education.
