About Me

My photo

I am a home schooling mom to three amazing kiddos.  We primarily use the Montessori pedagogy to guide our journey.  We also enjoy aspects of classical education and are part of Classical Conversations community. 

I write a Montessori column for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

I am still a geek at heart and at times miss my former career as an Information Architect/SharePoint Specialist.  I don't have much free time but if I do, it is spent on comic books and video games.

Our Gift of Time

| No comment
Today I want to offer some powerful words from Maria Montessori.  It's an excellent reminder of where our priorities should lie.

If we were to establish a primary principle, it would be to constantly allow the child’s participation in our lives.  For he cannot learn to act if he does not join in our actions, just as he cannot learn to speak if he does not hear...To extend to the child this hospitality, to allow him to participate in our work, can be difficult, but it costs nothing.  Our time is a far more precious gift than material objects.
