Winter Workshop with Kathleen Lloyd, PhD
Pathways to Self-Regulation, with Kathleen Lloyd, PhD
Plan to attend our Winter Workshop on Saturday, January 15th, 2011, 9:30am – 12:30pm, with Kathleen Lloyd, PhD, at Far Horizons Montessori School in Eugene. Expand your knowledge and learn how to share with parents the validity of our work and the insightful science behind the observations made by Dr. Montessori. Dr. Lloyd will offer an overiew of current research, showing the value of promoting and protecting concentration and supporting the concept of normalization.
Every teacher wants her classroom to be a self-managing social community. In the context of Maria Montessori's discovery that children are transformed through activities that promote concentration, Dr. Lloyd will introduce current research on self-regulation, which involves the ability to sustain attention, control reactions to stress, and recognize and interpret social cues. Learn how to apply these principles to your own work in preparing an environment that supports the optimal development of the child.
Kathleen earned a PhD in Human Development and Family Science from Oregon State University in 2008. Her dissertation analyzed Montessori’s observation of normalization in relation to current theories on self-regulation. She received her AMI Primary Diploma in 1987 and a master’s of education in 1990. She has spent 13 years as a primary directress at both Marin Montessori School in California and Pacific Crest School in Seattle, Washington. Kathleen currently teaches in the Early Childhood Education Department at Lane Community College.
We are excited to offer this workshop in Eugene at Far Horizons Montessori School, 2490 Hilyard St., Eugene, OR 97405. www.farhorizonsmontessori.com Credit for training hours will be given.
