2012 Remembered

Posted on by

The Google search engine surprises and reminds us of past and current events that influences our society through the postings of the Google doodle on their home page. On August 31st, 2012, Maria Montessori’s materials were captured on the doodle. Again today in memory of the best of 2012, we find Montessori in the foreground in the image of a teacher and child working with the knobbed and knobless cylinders and the binomial cube.  It has been a great year for Montessori!  So glad you are a part of the best international education system.  Happy New Year!

While on the airplane, returning from the Montessori in Asia Conference in Singapore, I had time to read an article regarding the shootings at the school in Newton, Massachusetts.

Nothing will repair the deep hurt we all feel, but perhaps this song and video by Kristen Andreassen and second grade students from Brighton, MA will bring a smile you can share with your children.
