My Montessori Experience- How it all began!!

I went to Brock University and got a degree in Sociology with a minor in Music. Music was my passion all through elementary school and high school. I graduated from Brock and decided to go into Montessori education while going to an information night with a friend of mine for Education and Teacher's College. I stumbled upon a pamphlet from Sheridan College in Oakville. The only thing I really knew about Montessori was my youngest cousin went to one until he was 9 years old. Next thing I knew I was applying to the 13 month long Early Childhood Montessori Teacher's certificate program at Sheridan College. I graduated in June of 2002 and was working full time in a Montessori School that September. I love what I do and I love how I teach!!
I am currently on Maternity leave as our first son, Noah was born in Sept. I can't wait to teach him and explore the world with him when he gets older. I don't want to rush his growing and development but I feel so lucky to have him in our lives. Right now he has to concentrate on developing the simple tasks in life, turning his head, focusing his eyes, rolling over, sleeping through the night (lol, wishful thinking).
In my up coming posts I will share my adventures and knowledge gained over the past 8 years (and counting) with everyone who is interested in the Montessori philosophy.


  1. People always say the same thing to me - you should go to the public school - I would never move - I love Montessori and totally believe in it! Montessori Moms all the way! :)

  2. You know - I just read the part above - never realized how similar our stories are!! I majored in Child and Youth Studies at Brock and minored in Sociology...and when I was waiting for my friend to get out of class I was reading the school paper and saw the Sheridan ad for Montessori education as well...the rest is exactly the same obviously!! LOL...We were meant to be friends - only wish I knew you at Brock - we would have had so much fun!!! LOL

  3. I know eh? We were meant to be. Stay tuned for more about our relationship. That was what my next posting was going to deal with.

  4. YEAH US!!! LOL - Look how young and thin we were! I still have the one of us having tea in the front of my Practical Life album - how about the one of you with the spoon and beans?? Remember Diane's face when I said I was using that in my album! We were always in trouble! Good times! :)
