Invite Paula Lillard Preschlack to speak at your school, conference, bookstore or event!

"I thoroughly enjoyed Paula’s presentation and learned a lot about the essential elements and value of Montessori education without it feeling like a lecture. She made it easy to understand”

Nancy Brady, President & CEO at Neighborhood House

“Paula’s talk was engaging and enlightening. She clearly articulated what makes Montessori education uniquely powerful and effective. I was personally inspired and heard from many others in attendance that they walked away from her presentation with an expanded view of Montessori’s importance in the education landscape.”

Jessica Ayers-Bean, Director of Advancement at Montessori Center of Minnesota

“This workshop is perfect for a day of professional development. Paula articulates what we do in the classroom; Specific tips are given such as analyzing movements, reflecting about presentations and using spontaneous observations to inform your decisions. A wonderful opportunity to reset, a refresher for your class: being the best you can offer the children whom you serve!“
