Village Montessori, Joan Rodriguez Malone

“For the last seven years I have been fortunate enough to work with Triumph Steps and Ms. Beatriz Martinez-Peñalver. Together, we worked to implement Triumph at our school. During that time Ms. Martinez -Peñalver led our parents in Educational Seminars. Our community of parents were very impressed with both the professional delivery and the quality content of the Triumph program.

We invited Beatriz to train our teachers in the Triumph framework. The training for our teachers was not only academically invigorating, but inspiring.

I also had the pleasure of participating in her presentation at The Montessori Florida Coalition conference hosted by Barry University. During this conference Beatriz presented Triumph to sixty heads of Montessori schools in South Florida. She not only met our expectations but exceeded the expectations of her audience, making it personal and creating a sense of urgency to bring emotional literacy to every school in America starting with professional development. With the success of her presentations, Ms. Martinez-Penalver was invited to be the keynote speaker in 2023 for the Montessori Florida Coalition and her presentation was a smashing success.

I not only recommend Triumph Steps and Ms. Beatriz Martinez-Penalver as a speaker, teacher trainer and educator, but believe everyone who has the opportunity to listen to this program will get a positive message that will change their lives.”.
