I truly believe that the most important person in any child's life, apart from a parent, is a teacher. When children are not only learning things that impress them daily, but are also being shown love by others, there is only one thing to feel: gratitude, and there is only one thing to say: thank you!
Montessori education addresses the whole child: his/her physical, social, emotional, and cognitive growth. Thus, Montessori Teachers, besides assisting children in becoming independent learners, also help them to turn their attention outward – fostering solidarity, collaboration, respect and dignity of others. We never forget the young child who exclaimed “I learned it myself!” -and we will forever be grateful to teachers who, despite good or bad personal days, are always poised, always patient, always ready to give: knowledge, attention, discipline, affection …. themselves. I myself, have been home-schooling my two children, and I know how it can take a toll: emotionally, physically, mentally …. and they are MY children! Thus, it is so praiseworthy for a teacher to give oneself so unselfishly, so wholeheartedly, so constructively … to the ones we love so dearly…to our children!
