Our Faculty Shine

Our Upper Elementary Faculty Shine – inside the classroom and in the community!

At Princeton Montessori School, our faculty members are developmental specialists for the ages they teach. All lead educators hold a Montessori teaching credential for their level and many hold advanced degrees. Sharing their expertise, through workshops or presenting at professional conferences, is a rewarding experience and a way to educate the community and promote our school.

Congratulations Huma Kazmi and Aish Saminathan

Huma Kazmi recently presented at the American Montessori Society Conference in Orlando FL

Uniting with Montessori Principles for Holistic Education
This 45-minute intensive Deep Dive explored asset-based pedagogies, and innovative educational approaches that emphasize identifying and nurturing students’ strengths and assets rather than focusing on their deficits. They aim to create a positive, empowering learning environment that fosters holistic development. The session delved into three asset-based pedagogical frameworks, elucidated their goals, and demonstrated how they align with Montessori pedagogy. The session proposed potential areas for improvement within Montessori’s approach to further enrich the educational experience.

Aish Saminathan will present a virtual workshop hosted by the Mercer County Library on Wednesday April 24, 2024 : 7:00 – 8:00 PM
