Read about the program! Coaching for Connection




Being a parent of a pre-teen and teenager can be particularly challenging and confusing. And yet, incorporating just a few basic coaching techniques can offer support and guidance while opening a window into their world.

At this special MMS Parent Education event, Katie Ibes, Montessori teacher, trainer, consultant, and life and leadership coach, will lead parents through some simple coaching exercises that invite a new way to maintain connection with the young adults in our lives.

Ibes is a principal of Grow Wise Coaching, and the Pedagogical Director for Great River School, a first- through 12th grade Montessori charter school in St. Paul, Minnesota.

At the event, attendees will practice coaching techniques with each other, gaining first-hand experience and appreciation of how vital and powerful this methodology can be.

While this workshop is primarily geared towards parents of children ages 9-18, all parents are welcome – the earlier we bring this work to our children, the better!

This event is open to MMS parents and the public. Admission is FREE.
