Sometimes when you are starting on a new venture, you need a little pep talk – some motivation to encourage you. One of the best ways of doing this is to consider how people you admire accomplished their goals. Dr. Montessori is a perfect example. Against all odds, she became the first woman in Italy to be certified as a medical doctor. When asked to care for the children in the slums of San Lorenzo, she used the position as an opportunity to develop her methodology. She was a visionary who was not deterred from her goals by any obstacles. And thanks to her dedication and drive, the Montessori method continues to grow around the world to this day. Let Dr. Montessori’s story spark your motivation as you blaze your own trail.
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!
