Hi, I am a Montessorian, truely believes on the Montessori approach of life. Montessori is not only about Academics, its about the whole child ;his physical, intellectual, social, emotional, psychological, mental, spiritual and creative developements.
I am teaching not for the sake of it but I'v discovered that this profession is linked with the real developement of humans unlike any other profession.
My classroom strategies mostly depends on the Montessori method, but I would love to Research more and more as I believe that Learning never ends and we can still discover a more natural system of education.
I am very much Research minded, and right now I am researching a lot about European systems of Education and especially Finland and Germany (WALDORF). FOREST kindergartens developing all around Europe are really pulling me to reseach more and more on the emerging systems.
The book LAST CHILD IN THE WOODS by Richard Louv have changed my belief systems and thoughts drastically. Children and Nature Network (C&NN) is the organization built by Richard Louve,and it has been changing the Belief systems about education, learning and children's natural and creative developement. It tries to bring back NATURE into our lives.
