How did you learn about Montessori? 
With a mother working at Arbor for over 30 years as the Business Manager, Montessori was in my life from age 7 onward. I was a jealous older sibling when my sister attended Arbor and knew that a Montessori classroom was what I really wanted both in my life as a student and as a teacher. My college degree confirmed that Montessori was the best choice for how I wanted to work with children.
