Parent Education Workshop with guest speaker Jonathan Wolff

Beyond facts, figures, and formulas, what will young people need to know to find their way and make their mark in a world which increasingly demands higher order thinking, social intelligence, and self-organizing skills?  How can you empower your children to think for themselves, think of others, and think outside-the-box?  We welcomed nationally renowned educator and international Montessori consultant Jonathan Wolff for this hands-on demonstration and workshop.
