Welcome to Conflict to Collaboration.  This online interactive training uses the principles of Positive Discipline in the Montessori Classroom, by Jane Nelsen and me, to help participants learn how to implement respectful, effective, and time-tested methods of parent communication and leadership that reflect our deepest values as Montessori educators: mutual respect, cooperation, and collabortion. 

Classes will be held online via Zoom.

Learning Platform

The learning platform is the online classroom and is accessed by logging onto my website  Each week, on Wednesday, I will post a video recording of the Monday evening session.   Be sure to print out a copy of the workbook, as you will be taking notes and recording observations in the workbook throughout the class.  Handouts may also be posted from week to week on the platform, as appropriate, as well as the homework to be completed after each session.

Preparation for Session One

Please download and print the workbook in session one under the heading 

Homework During the Course

Homework will be very manageable.  You will have occasional reflections to complete between some classes.  The rest of our work will be done during our time together in class.

Attendance and Participation

This course is experiential and depends on the active participation of participants in the activities and discussions.  With that in mind, participants are asked to attend the sessions, live.  If you are not able to attend a session, video recordings of the session will be posted within 24 hours of each session.  This is an interactive course, and we ask that you keep your video on during the classes, as we will be using breakout sessions throughout each session.


At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of completion for the course indicating 16-course- hours.

To obtain your certificate, you will need to complete all 8 sessions of the workshop and complete a course evaluation.  The course evaluation will be done during the last session of the workshop.

I look forward to working with you!  Please let us know if you have any questions!  Feel free to email me at:

Warm regards,
