Montessori Madmen

Advocating Montessori

We're an impatient, ragtag group of dads and advocates from around the world, united by a common zeal to bring the Montessori method to millions more. Our mission is simple: to advocate for Montessori education so that one day it's not called Montessori school; it's just called school.

Montessori MadMen Swimsuit Calendar

The Montessori MadMen Swimsuit Calendar is in production! (And just to squelch any rumors right up front: WE WON'T BE WEARING SWIMSUITS...er, um, not that we'll be WITHOUT swimsuits. What we mean is that the clothes that we'll be wearing will be clothes OTHER THAN swimsuits.)

We are building a calendar for the whole Montessori movement. We're putting all the Montessori events for the year in one place. One wacky, funny calendar. One serious, important movement. One goal: Montessori for more children.

Send us info/dates on any events in 2013 and 2014, also include the link to your site where they are listed. We're looking for events that are larger than individual school events: regional and state conferences, national conferences, meetings of groups of schools, etc. We think this calendar will serve a number of purposes:

  1. Help emphasize to Montessorians that we are all on the same team.

  2. Provide a funny conversation piece to put up in your school or office.

  3. Help Montessorians from one organization find events they might not otherwise be aware of in their area that are associated with one of the other organizations.

  4. Cross-pollinate Montessori ideas and foster connections among people in our movement.

  5. Help vendors and attendees more efficiently plan how to attend the events.

  6. Help organizations plan events so as not to conflict with other, similar events.
