All in a Day's Work
What a week! I was sick the first two days of the week and slowly recovering the rest of the week. I lost my voice but the children took it in stride. On Friday, I decided (or rather, my body demanded) to sit back and observe. Here is what I saw:
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."
