Montessori 101

Nahla Nasser explains all things Montessori - concepts, theory, pedagogy, history, rationales, and, most importantly, how the Montessori method can help your child succeed.



Our Primary teachers will show us how compassion, high standards, manipulatives, and progression combine to create a curious and engaged Pre-K learner.


Lower Elementary 

Join our Lower Elementary teachers as they present on the next step of independence, interdependence, and interdisciplinary learning at St. Stephen's. This presentation will cover how we teach math and language art skills as well as science, history, and geography, all while supporting the social and emotional growth of our LE students.


Upper Elementary 

Our Upper El teachers will continue the Montessori journey, covering pedagogy and technology in the classroom. Come and learn about how we take Montessori principles to the next level of complexity and abstraction in Upper Elementary.


Middle Years

Our Middle Years teachers will speak on our academic powerhouse (virtually) located in the Nevers Building. The conversation may also include essential topics such as creating leaders, bonus programs and class trips, philanthropy and social justice, community and team learning, keys to high school success, and how Montessori principles track through a St. Stephen's education, from the age of 18 months to grade 8.


Positive Discipline

The capstone presentation for our parent education series, Nahla Nasser will speak on positive discipline. Positive Discipline is based on recent research that tells us that children are hardwired from birth to connect with others. Children who experience the positive discipline approach connect better with their community, family, and school.
