Welcome to Spring Snow Publications!
I’m Terry Chitwood. My wife, Deb, and I are the cofounders of Spring Snow Publications. Through Spring Snow Publications, we plan to publish books, eBooks, DVDs, and CDs on a variety of topics. A number of eBooks are in progress already.
I plan to publish revised editions in eBook format of my three out-of-print books: How To Defend Yourself Without Even Trying, Meeting Force With Silence, and Death: The Beginning of Life. I have a number of books in progress ranging from commodity trading to poetry. Deb plans to publish her book Montessori at Home or School: How to Teach Grace and Courtesy. I hope you enjoy the ongoing development of our site.
In addition, I studied theology at the Episcopal seminary in Sewanee, Tennessee, during the summers of 1991 and 1992. I have been a Jungian psychotherapist in private practice for over 31 years. My private practice is full, and I am not taking any new clients currently.
I am the author of the following books: HowTo Defend Yourself Without Even Trying (1981, topic Aikido), Meeting Force With Silence (1985, topic Aikido), and Death: The Beginning of Life (1988, topic Jungian Psychotherapy). I am a musician, songwriter, and poet as well. Also, I am a trader educator for stocks, commodity futures, forex and options. My blog is Trader Educator Online.
I have my Montessori certification for teaching children ages 2½-5 through the St. Nicholas Training Centre in London, now called Montessori Centre International. In addition to traditional Montessori certification, I’m certified to teach two Montessori-based religious-education programs: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and Godly Play.
My bachelor’s degree from Antioch University is in Liberal Studies with my concentration in Montessori Elementary and Early Childhood Education. I received my MA in Early Childhood Studies from Sheffield Hallam University in Sheffield, England, with my degree work and dissertation largely focused on Montessori education. I am also the author of a 1983 children’s book, The Magic Ring.
I have two blogs. At Living Montessori Now, I write about Montessori education, homeschooling, and parenting. At Raising Figure Skaters, I have word-art freebies, inspirational quotes, encouragement for parents and athletes, posts on character and gratitude, motivation for life, and ways to make a difference.
