We also assist the school’s administration in communicating between the school and parents. We provide assistance to the teachers and reinforce classroom learning and behavior. We promote respect and support diversity among students and staff. Sometimes we solve the cultural differences between teachers and students. All in all, we help organize and make Seward Montessori a more diversified school.
