Musings on Montessori and life from a teacher/guide/directress
Thursday, November 11, 2010
The children at our school have a wonderful manufactured playground, yet often choose to play in the woods and on the stumps of trees. I think it is one more case of that which is authentic and real always trumps manufactured and simulated.
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."
