The best thing about my job is the daily privilege of working with children. They literally teach me something new every day! I love learning. The second best thing is no two days are the same! I have to come to work ready for anything. I feel very fortunate to have a job I love, and it is an honor to work side by side with passionate, committed individuals in this dynamic learning environment.
Well, if I only had a week I would like to go to Bali.
I chose Montessori because I liked the freedom it offered for my child. I was drawn to the prepared environment. I love the order and didactic materials. It makes sense!
The lessons I most enjoy giving in class are numerous. I love when I give a lesson and the children seem to, as if by magic, come up with an instantaneous plan for some great work they will do to follow-up. I love it when they tell me it was the best lesson they’ve ever had. I have gone through stages of loving one lesson or another, probably depending on the level of my confidence. I love the geometry lessons and the tie to history and etymology. I wish I could tell you that just one lesson is my favorite, but truly so many are so much fun to give.
If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, I would go to the Mediterranean. I am interested in the cultures, art, architecture, food and geography of the region.
The best thing about my work is that I get to work in such a wonderful environment. I love my job, the people I work with and of course, all of the children!
If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, I would go to any exciting, adventurous place. We love to try new and different things when we take trips, so it doesn’t matter where, just as long as I am with my husband and two amazing children!
The best thing about my work is the people I work with.
The students are amazing. It gives me great joy to see the work they are capable of and the genuine satisfaction they get from learning. The faculty and staff are so incredibly supportive, it makes coming to work a pleasure.
If I could spend a week anywhere in the world I would go BACK to Hawaii.
I would spend time with my Ohana there and ease back into the pace of "island time” I miss so much!
The best thing about my work is that I get to document the amazing things that take place at MVM. As a photographer I get to see the children working, learning and creating. It is a great experience to be a part of such an extraordinary school.
If I could spend a week anywhere in the world, I would go to New Zealand. It has always been my dream to travel there.
