I already have my master’s degree, so I wasn’t sure how much I could gain from another teacher education program. I have been surprised and delighted by the depth and quality of what I have been offered.
Wow! The word training is conspicuously inadequate to describe the experience I just went through.
One of the greatest growth experiences I have engaged in at the CMStep training, was the wonderful community our cohort formed.
Among many other things I have learned to create better transitions, set intentions and express gratitude with my students, create the opportunity for reflection and silence, make food preparation a consistent part of the program, and to make the space for students to lead and own the program.
CMStep has transformed me. I am a better educator, far more organized and intentional about my craft. I have a sense of direction that is fueled by the passion I bring to the classroom and I feel that the structures I have learned during my time with CMStep have prepared me to be a more impactful educator.
I have a Montessori upper level credential and one of the great parts of this program for me has been learning what cosmic education for the adolescent can look like. I’m glad it doesn’t end at age 12!
