Hope Montessori Educational Institute would like to thank you for the time in proposing this presentation. We are looking forward to an exciting conference.

Accepted presenters will be able to attend the entire conference at no charge. Presentations will be on October 7th, 2023. There will be a $100 honorarium for each presentation and we will provide lunch at the hotel the day of your presentation. Friday evening after the “Montessori Voices”, we will have a speaker’s reception/dinner. This is based on one person presenting. A maximum of two may present together. In that case, the honorarium will be split between the two presenters.

We will let you know if your proposal was accepted within two weeks of the deadline for proposals.

Workshops/Keynotes will be submitted for continuing education credit with AMS and the State of Missouri.
