Register for the MPPI Advocacy Retreat Today!
Montessori Advocates,

MPPI is thrilled to announce Maryland State Senator Will Smith will join us to speak at our Fall 2018 Advocacy Retreat, to be held at the Crown Plaza Old Town Alexandria, September 30th-October 2nd. Senator Smith was a Montessori child and testified in support of a Montessori credential pathway to licensure in Maryland.

This third MPPI retreat will once again bring our Montessori advocates together to participate in valuable advocacy training and share successes and challenges in our work.

Gain skills for effective advocacy, learn about the Montessori policy landscape, hear how others are affecting change, and walk away with tools to transform policy in your state.

This year's retreat will feature:
  • The introduction of the new MPPI/MACTE Montessori Teacher Credential Recognition Toolkit through our credential recognition bootcamp.
  • The unveiling of our new environmental rating tool crosswalks, including the ECERS-3, developed through dialogue with the ECERS authors. Retreat attendees will have the opportunity for in-depth training on the development and use of these valuable advocacy tools.
