My Students

Teaching in a Montessori environment is something different. It nurtures the innate curiosity and inquisitiveness that are within all children. Our students love coming to our library to read, research, and use the technology. They come to collaborate on personal and scholastic projects. They come to plan fundraisers for field trips and research crafts and look for ways to volunteer.

"And so we discovered that education is not something which the teacher does, but that it is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being"- Maria Montessori.

We follow (and guide) the children and they take us to some amazing places, be it handmade interactive book talks, putting on a student planned and led fall carnival, seeking to move ahead in their curriculum, or just exploring questions that arise from their day to day lives. Our students constantly work toward development of all aspects of self and respect for their community, their environment, and themselves.

My Project

In Montessori, children are encouraged to create and explore in child centered environments with materials that entice them action. Legos have long held a fascination for all ages and are incredible tools to explore spacial reasoning, simple and complex structure building, and improving fine motor skills, not to mention active imagination growth. Our children love to work with their hands and by donating to this project for kits, bricks, and baseplates you will be providing a space and materials for students to create, build confidence and give our children a fun and enriching breather from normal classroom work, allowing time for children to regroup and refocus before returning to other learning activities.
