Listening is one of the greatest skills anyone can develop. As Montessori teachers, we are well aware of this. We know how important it is to listen to children and how often they tell us far more what their words are saying. Listening is equally important outside of the classroom – parents, colleagues, directors, mentors, new teachers; everyone has something to offer and a new perspective to share. We just have to be open to hearing them.
As part of NAMC’s anniversary celebration, I have been asked to share 20 lessons that stand out in my experience of providing Montessori teacher training programs worldwide over the past 20 years. We are happy to share the next tip in our series that we are presenting over the next few weeks. I hope you find some of these ideas helpful in your own Montessori journey!
