A little about yourself...
Catherine Varkas, Director
Catherine began her religious educational studies in 1981 while a graduate student at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox School of Theology, in Brookline, Massachusetts. Catherine has earned a myriad of certifications and designations within the early child, elementary, and Montessori programming, which inspired a life-long dream to create an Orthodox Christian catechism applying Montessori methodology to an early childhood program for the Orthodox Church.

With the blessing of Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta, Catherine began a pilot program of her work at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Tarpon Springs, Florida. The church has fully adopted the program for their 3-6 year old children.

With the blessing of Metropolitan Methodios of Boston Catherine currently offers training at Hellenic College in Brookline for Sunday school, Preschool, and home schoolteachers at the 3-6 age level, while she continues to work toward expanding the program to include older age groups as well.

You're very welcome.  I'm so glad it can be useful to you!  Also, thanks for posting the events.  I just wanted to make sure they are two separate events.  If not, I can delete one of them.  I'm very interested in attending the training.  I'm going to sit down tonight after dinner and look through the site with more detail.  I can't wait!
