凯利弗兰德斯,21岁"I have been so thankful for the M.Ed. in Montessori (Post-Diploma) program during the last year. As a school leader, I was excited to join this cohort of guides and school administrators. The program has connected me with Montessorians worldwide, 因此,, I know that I will forever be grateful. The online platforms have been easy to navigate, and I have found the work to be manageable while working full-time in our school. I have been able to continue to move forward in my personal growth when the rest of my life feels like we are standing still."
