How did you learn about Montessori?: I gained experience about Montessori from working as an assistant in both the Primary and Infant Community at Montessori Country Day.

Where did you take your training?: Southwest Institute of Montessori Studies in Arizona

What do you love about Montessori?: That the classroom is intentionally prepared so that students are free to choose the activity they want to work with. They learn to make choices based on what they are interested in and at their individual pace.
