Celebrating A Legacy of Education

During the week of February 29- March 4, we celebrated Dr. Maria Montessori, an Italian physician and educator.   She was the creator of the Montessori education method.  The week was filled with activities and celebrations both in and out of the classroom. Our Kick-off included a proclamation from the governor’s office declaring this week Montessori Education Week, an inspirational speech from our Tara Wicker our District 10 councilwoman, as well as testimonials from former teachers, parents and students.  Week long activities included student led lessons and testimonial walls that illustrated the significance of Montessori education.  The culminating activity was a classroom tea where student practiced grace and being polite, a part of the philosophy of Montessori.
