We are thrilled to try our 2023 new location, in Phoenix Arizona at the Hilton Tapatio. Stay tuned to learn more about our event, we are preparing a wonderful pre-Conference day (line dancing included!) as well as compelling speakers that will go in depth in their different breakout sessions. Our keynote speakers bring in two of the most important subjects in todays classrooms, equity and mindfulness.

Following our theme of Montessori Flourishing, Nurturing wellbeing in children, schools and the world we are planning a full day of Thursday activities for our audience to disconnect from their everyday to connect with their fellow attendees. An improved Sunday session promises to bring in a personalized action-plan for you to bring with you to your Classroom or School Community.
