Reflecting on Montessori From A to Z

April is a busy time of year in the Montessori world. Once Spring Break is over, the rapid evaluations must take place so that you can write all of those lovely conference reports for May. I tried to be a good girl and start them a little earlier this year. I got distracted, though, having to post for the A to Z Challenge this year. I was determined to actually complete it, as last year I was unable to.

I enjoyed doing it again this year. I set up most of my titles well in advance. It gave me a chance to reflect on who I am and why I do what I do. I also felt it could be a learning tool for parents and others interested in the Montessori philosophy. One of the parents in my room, who is also a coworker of mine, told me that she came across the challenge and read the whole thing. She really enjoyed it. If even one person learns something new....

I have a feeling I will try to do this one again next year. There is just so much to say about Montessori and the philosophy. It's a great way to share my passion for it. The challenge also helped to revive my passion this year.

Here are the links to this year's posts. The few that I did last year will follow after this. Happy reading and thanks for stopping by!
