This Thursday we welcome Paula Lillard Preschlack to talk about building parent relationships and connecting them to your mission!

Hi Montessorians,

We know how challenging it can be to find the magic key to building strong parent relationships. The truth is, every school community is different and what works for one school may not work for another. Our guest this week will talk to us about building parent relationships and connecting them to your mission, the ultimate key to a thriving, reliable community of families.


Paula Lillard Preschlack is a dedicated Montessorian who, like many of us, wears many hats. She is a writer, speaker, and Head of School at Forest Bluff School in Lake Bluff, IL. Her work primarily focuses on the principles and successes of the Montessori approach, rooted in over 20 years experience teaching and observing children from birth to adulthood. 

For this week's conversation Paula and I will discuss how building parent relationships and connecting them to your mission is crucial to building a community of families that are engaged, dedicated, and committed. 

If you missed last week's call, Bonnie Shearer from St. Peter's Montessori School in Litchfield Park, AZ and I talked about doing the work of preparing your community for the ever-present staffing issue we face in today's Montessori teacher shortage. You can watch the recording here

We look forward to our call on Thursday, May 15th at 10:30 am PST / 1:30pm EST. Register here or go to
