I'm passionate about Montessori Education for children and the implications it has for our world. This passion comes out of my experiences as a mother, a teacher, and as someone who has spent her life interested in children, always intrigued by their mysterious spirit and informed by their often unrecognized potentialities.
My inspiration comes from the children I have known in my life. Their innate potential and inner light have always fascinated me. I have spent my life being intrigued, enlightened, and inspired by the children who have crossed my path. But it was my work as a Montessori teacher that I saw something I had not before-an environment in which the spirit and potential of the child was fully protected and nurtured. The children who were students in my Montessori classrooms gave me an opportunity to see first hand the power and brilliance of Maria Montessori's philosophy and method for educating children. In both public and private schools I witness the unfolding of potential, and it was amazing!
So why this Montessori blog?
