Food and food preparation provide valuable opportunities for educating children. Food is not just for survival and satisfying our physical needs, food is also part of our social life. Food is an educational tool that helps children to adapt to their family, culture, and community by offering sensorial experiences, enriching language, refining movements, encouraging independence, and, most importantly, feeling part of their community. Join us for a workshop where together we will explore different tools to help children to have a better approach to food.
About our Presenter: Gabriela’s Montessori journey began as a child. Her mother was a Montessori teacher, so she grew up attending Montessori schools in Mexico. It was only natural that upon reaching adulthood that she also decided to pursue a career in Montessori education. After completing her degree in Early Childhood Education, she earned the AMI Assistance to Infancy diploma. She would go on to work for more than 20 years in Montessori schools in Mexico and the United States.
Gabriela completed the demanding AMI Training of Trainers program to be named an AMI Trainer at the level of 0-3 Assistants to infancy. She began her first full 0-3 training in August with SIMS! She has also worked on 0-3 teacher-training courses in Denver and Taiwan. She serves as a lecturer, consultant and national examiner for AMI.
Welcome AMI Primary Trainer, Tiffany Liddell, as she leads a workshop on Childhood Trauma. Full presentation description and sign-up will be available soon.
Tiffany Liddell is an AMI Primary Trainer who was born and raised in the beautiful Northwest of Oregon. She moved to Phoenix, AZ to pursue the AMI Primary (2 1/2-6) training in 2005 and discovered the power of this approach as she implemented Montessori’s teachings with her children. After her AMI graduation in 2006, she became a Lead Primary Guide in a Charter Montessori school. After her fourth child, she decided to leave the classroom and open an in-home Montessori Preschool where she could offer the Montessori approach to children in her neighborhood. Tiffany holds a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Education with specialization in Early Childhood Education, in addition to an Arizona State Teaching credential for Early Childhood. Concurrent with teaching children, Tiffany began working at a local community college in the Early Childhood field instructing adult learners and developing curriculum for the early childhood department in 2010. T iffany has also been involved in the greater Arizona Early Childhood community by facilitating professional development workshops across the state and has conducted observations and provided coaching in early childhood classrooms for a national credentialing program for early childhood professionals. After 8 years as a lead guide in the classroom and working with adults at the college level, Tiffany decided that combining her passion for the Montessori approach and teaching adults about Montessori was her next step in life. Tiffany became a Primary course assistant at the Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in 2015, and in 2016 was accepted into the AMI Primary Training of Trainers program.
