Why I Write

I once read about the psychologist Deanne Kuhn, who recounted “the orangutan test”: If I have some new ideas and I go into a room with an orangutan to explain them, the orangutan will simply sit there and eat its banana.  I will come out of the room, however, knowing more than I did before.

This is how I do my learning: Through writing and reflecting on my experiences as a Montessori guide.  Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, sometimes I’m spot-on, and sometimes I miss the mark by a few hundred miles… But I always write from the heart, because Montessori is my passion, my calling, my life.

If you’ve come in search of pom-pom transferring activities, you’re in the wrong place.  However, If you’re looking for posts that will help you learn more about the Montessori method and philosophy, as well as what goes on behind the scenes at a Montessori school, then please hang out here for a while.  When you’re done, visit www.mariamontessori.com.  That’s my second home for sharing my thoughts on the wonder and beauty that is a quality Montessori education (minus the ranting and snarkiness, I promise!)

Thanks for visiting… I hope you’ll stick around!
