I love teaching in my Montessori classroom. This is my first year teaching and I could not have asked for a better class. My class is a multi-age level group of 23 students that range in age from 3 to 6 years old.
Each child is so unique and brings such joy and energy to our classroom.
My students are curious, energetic, compassionate, and creative. We love to spend time outdoors exploring and getting to know the world around us.
Twelve of my students are kindergartners and they are such wonderful leaders. I love seeing them grow as they give lessons to their younger friends. Not only does this reinforce the concept to the kindergartner, but the younger ones love being taught by the older students. It strengthens the feeling of community and love in the classroom. We are a Montessori family!
I am a first-year teacher and I love what I do! As a teacher, I hope to cultivate a lifelong love of learning in the hearts of my students. So it is only right that I practice what I preach! I know I still have lots to learn and I am excited to grow my Montessori knowledge. The A.M.S. conference takes place this March in Washington D.C. At this conference, I will have access not only to financial literacy professional development opportunities but also many other areas as well!
I love that Montessori allows teachers and students to have unique hands-on approach to subjects like financial literacy.
Money and math can be such abstract subjects for students to grasp, but the tools in Montessori classrooms allow them to become concrete and engaging. I look forward to the training that The Montessori Event Conference will provide. The following are some of the workshop sessions I look forward to attending: Building Community through a Capital Campaign, The Mixed-Age Adolescent Math Classroom, Demystifying Math a la Mario Montessori, and Refreshing the Math Shelves. I know it will make a huge difference in my classroom for me to have this training experience.
We are hoping to raise enough money for many of our teachers from our school to attend this training. This project is my effort to raise a portion of my money needed for various parts of this financial literacy professional development opportunity. The money will be split between the conference fee, transportation, lodging, and food.
