"One of our proudest achievements of IAME is the nationally recognized Montessori Education Week Program. This program established the last week in February as National Montessori Education Week. During this week the vast number of Montessori schools celebrate the Montessori method of education in a variety of ways. Celebrations range from school to school and state to state." from IAME's website
Since we at Waterfront Academy are still working on opening a school we can't host a celebration this year to acknowledge the successes of Montessori alumni as well as the impact and continued relevance today of the Montessori's philosophy over 100 years after Maria Montessori opened her first school in 1907.
That said, we did start pinning news articles to our Pinterest account of articles from around the world on Montessori education, Catholic education, Dual-Language education, and school-choice issues. You can say that this week has inspired us to celebrate the quality education that Montessori provides children year-round. You can start receiving these clippings regularly by following us on Pinterest.com.
Also please let us know in the comment section how you are celebrating Montessori Education Week - we are looking for more inspiration for next year!
