"You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him find it within himself" -Galileo. I value an educational system that allows the natural intrinsic desires and motivations within a child to blossom. It is through these lenses that they access information about their world as they construct it. I came to Montessori education for my own daughter who was challenged within a state school system and have not looked back. I have been a sciences teacher for more than 15 years and Montessori for 2 years. I enjoy reading educational philosopy and science fiction, spending time outdoors camping and looking at maps. Maps are just cool.
