1: “We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life | We cannot know the consequences of suppressing a child's spontaneity when he is just beginning to be active. We may even suffocate life itself. That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life. Maria Montessori

2: You are the people who are shaping a better world. One of the secrets of inner peace is the practice of compassion. Dalai Lama

That humanity which is revealed in all its intellectual splendor during the sweet and tender age of childhood should be respected with a kind of religious veneration. It is like the sun which appears at dawn or a flower just beginning to bloom. Education cannot be effective unless it helps a child to open up himself to life | We cannot create observers by saying 'observe,' but by giving them the power and the means for this observation and these means are procured through education of the senses. Maria Montessori

6: hug a planet

8: It is not enough for the teacher to love the child. She must first love and understand the universe. She must prepare herself, and truly work at it.

12: Winter | Spring | Summer | Fall

15: Character formation cannot be taught. It comes from experience and not from explanation.

18: A trade mark of Montessori 3-6 work!

19: To become acquainted with the material, a teacher should not just look at it, study it in a book, or learn its use through the explanations of another. Rather, she must exercise herself with it for a long time, trying in this way to evaluate through her own experience the difficulties of, or the interests inherent in, each piece of material that can be given to a child, trying to interpret, although imperfectly, the impressions which a child himself can get from it. Moreover, if a teacher has enough patience to repeat an exercise as often as a child, she can measure in herself the energy and endurance possessed by a child of a determined age. For this final purpose, the teacher can grade the materials and thus judge the capacity of a child for a certain kind of activity at a given stage of his development.

28: We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.

31: Sunrock Farm, Kentucky Once a year trip since 1980's

33: "We live in a world in which we need to share responsibility. It's easy to say "It's not my child, not my community, not my world, not my problem." Then there are those who see the need and respond. I consider those people my heroes." — Fred Rogers

39: "Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher." -Japanese proverb

45: Movement, or physical activity, is thus an essential factor in intellectual growth, which depends upon the impressions received from outside. Through movement we come in contact with external reality, and it is through these contacts that we eventually acquire even abstract ideas.
