Musings on Montessori and life from a teacher/guide/directress
Tuesday, June 14, 2011
What a great school year we had! I have only been off two days and I am already missing all the funny and thoughtful things the children say and, of course, all their hugs! Here are the graduates and a few of their activities: baking, writing, enjoying our feast together, celebrating birthdays, and visiting the elders. They are a strong and self-assured group, more than ready to make the world a better place!
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."
