The Montessori Method was created by Maria Montessori in Italy in the 1890's. She was a doctor, a true maverick, being a woman and all and being a practicing physician. She saw a need, though, and fulfilled the teaching and taming of the town's young children and those with special needs. Her methods caught fire and literally spread across the world, where a resurgence of Montessori methods came about in the United States back in the 1970's.
Back in the day, B.C. (Before Children), I was a certified AMS Montessori teacher and spent my days with a room full of three, four, five and six year olds! I am now a stay-at-home mom to two, Lawton (5) and Carolina (2). I have used so much of my training with my son, and I thought this blog would be a wonderful way to share some great things for all my blogging friends to do with the special little ones in your life! You, too can become a "Momtessori"!
