The date for the 2014 Annual Conference will be set in March 2013.
MSM is pleased to be able to offer a high quality conference experience for schools in the Massachusetts area. The most important part of attending the MSM Annual Conference is the valuable information you take home to your community. The ideas and strategies you learn from workshops, roundtables, speakers, and exhibitors can be implemented back home in your own school. The date for the 2014 Annual Conference will be set in March 2013. We will update the website as details about the next conference become available.
Call for Presenters
Have some great ideas to share with other teachers or administrators? How about presenting at the MSM Annual Conference! Montessori Schools of Massachusetts is now accepting proposals for workshop presenters for its 2014 Annual Conference. The conference will include a morning keynote address and two sessions of workshops of interest to teachers and administrators.
We welcome proposals from novice and veteran presenters. Each workshop is 90 minutes long and the stipend is $200.
Anyone interested in submitting a proposal for a workshop should complete the online Workshop Presentation Proposal form by August 1, 2013.
If you know of individuals who might be appropriate presenters, please call this opportunity to their attention.
In response to member comments after the 2008 Annual Conference we have created this section of the site for Keynote and workshop handouts and PowerPoint presentations. Presenters will be given the option to post their information here either before or after the conference date. All materials are provided in PDF, which can be viewed with Adobe Reader.
Documents posted below, from the 2013 conference, will be available for viewing through January 2014. If information from a workshop is not listed on this page please contact the presenter directly with questions
