"You're Sad When Your Pet Dies"
Our beloved Robby died last week. He was 9 years old, which, as my husband says, is about 1,000 in human years (just kidding). I could say much more, but I will only say he became dear to me and to the children. Here is a song one of the children in my Casa wrote to honor Robby.
I am a Montessori teacher who just completed my 10th year. I feel lucky to have found a calling that incorporates so many of my interests: music, theater, art, literature, and sports. I adore singing, tennis, and gardening. I have three fabulous children ranging in age from 14-21 (all Montessori-educated). Montessori opened up the world for me. I found out I love practical life and making beautiful things, which I have dubbed "Jane Austen Time."
