AMI Teacher &
Director of Education
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.
