E10: Becoming a Montessori Educator: A conversation with Louise Livingston

Written by Dr. Matt Bateman on January 10, 2022

Louise Livingston (@LouLiv1), an AMI Montessori Trainer at the Maria Montessori Institute joins Ray Girn (@raygirn) and Matt Bateman (@mbateman) for a discussion about the distinct virtues and mindsets required to become a Montessori educator.

What is the role of the Montessori educator? How is it different from how we might conceive of a teacher and other approaches? What is technology's role in these questions?
