    My name is Kari. I have elementary and Assistance to Infancy trainings. Currently, I am thoroughly enjoying teaching upper elementary in public school, Milwaukee, WI. I am thrilled to try Montessori Notes.

    One of my favorite Montessori quotes is, “The secret of good teaching is to regard the child’s intelligence as a fertile field in which seeds may be sown, to grow under the heat of flaming imagination. Our aim therefore is not merely to make the child understand, and still less to force him to memorize, but so to touch his imagination as to enthuse him to his innermost core.”

    My favourite Montessori quote is
    “As soon as children find something that interests them they lose their instability and learn to concentrate.”

    Hello, my name is Lisa. I am located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA. I am a guide for the Primary level, but have the elementary training as well.

    “The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction. Our hope for peace in the future lies not in the formal knowledge the adult can pass on to the child, but in the normal development of the new man.” Dr. Maria Montessori, Education and Peace
