Learn to Be Still

I worked and was trained at a Montessori school in using the Montessori educational method. The method involves allowing the child to lead his or her own education, and to do so by manipulating physical materials and translating them into abstract ideas. Montessori emphasizes respect for others and yourself, as well as learning language arts, math, geography, science, sensorial skills and practical life. The materials and classroom are designed so that the child can do everything he or she needs, including wash their hands, without assistance.

On top of my Montessori training, I also believe in parents taking charge of their children’s education. Whether you homeschool or send your children to a public, private or parochial school, parental involvement makes a huge difference in children’s education.
