Learning never stops. Getting feedback about the challenges that come with guiding children or adults helps leaders see possibilities and find practical solutions.


Consultation is perfect for working on a particular situation for a limited period of time. Packages range from 2 to 5 one-hour sessions. Consultation packages come with a free half-hour initial phone or Zoom call.

$50 for one hour-long session or $200 for five hour-long sessions.

*Ten percent of all earnings will be redistributed to Britt Hawthrone in your name.


Mentoring for teachers happens over a longer period of time so clients can work on achieving long term goals, setting new patterns, or deepening their understanding of Montessori pedagogy or praxis. Mentoring is a relationship and like any relationship, the more one is open to expanding their understanding and stretching themselves, the more they’ll gain. Mentoring packages are once a month for 10 months or twice a month for 10 months. Mentoring packages come with a free one-hour consultation. Teacher mentoring packages of 10 months have a 15% discount if paid on a one-time payment.

Price is a sliding-scale based on income (for example, if the teacher salary is below $20k, sessions are $20/hr).

End Of Life Doula Services

Just as Montessori believed in offering the child profound respect, we should extend that same profound respect to those at the end of life.

With nationally recognized Montessori and Dementia Care Practitioner from the International Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners and End of Life Doula Certificates, and as a member of NEDA (National End of Life Doula Alliance), I am committed to offering skilled support to individuals and families facing tough decisions about end of life care.

As a non-medical professional, I work with clients to set goals and clarify their vision for care and treatment during the dying process.

Together we create end of life directives, legacy artifacts, transcribe oral history, and share this information with loved ones, as well as create plans that you may add to your formal legal documents or advanced directive. 

Planning in advance helps loved ones know exactly what you want and offers them comfort. I took this training after my closest friend of 30 years was diagnosed with stage 4 glioblastoma. I wanted to be prepared to support my friend and ease the journey they took as a family. It was so helpful to us that I decided to offer this to others, as well. Death is a natural part of life, a beautiful part. Knowing how to walk that path with planning makes all the difference

“Jana has taught me so much! I am serving as one of the directors of a Montessori School now and I owe so much of my career to her! She made me truly “understand” the method and I fell in even more in love with the Montessori method after my training. Thank you, Jana, you are a bright star for Montessorians everywhere!”
