Thanks for your interest in Keys to Cosmic Education!

I created this course to help you make Cosmic Education the heart of your classroom curriculum and to make it easier, faster, and with less overwhelm.

Montessori’s vision for the education of the elementary-aged child is a far cry from the classrooms focused on mastering skills for the purpose of high scores on high-stakes tests. I believe that Cosmic Education is the opportunity to master skills with connection to real world application and purpose.

This presentation considers the following:

  • 5 Keys to successfully implementing Cosmic Education in your classroom
  • Ways to structure classroom activities that focus on Cosmic Education and Interdependence
  • Practical applications that you can use TODAY!

This presentation is for you if:

  • Cosmic Education takes a back seat to math and language
  • You have a hard time making time for Cosmic Education
  • You need a refresher on the value Cosmic Education has for our students in elementary and beyond
