Giving Thanks

Posted on by

This year, more than ever, I have seen evidence of people giving thanks for all of the wonders in their lives.  From count down posts on FaceBook – one for each day of November to children talking about what they are thankful for.  This is truly the time we set aside for counting our blessings.  When I think about the thing I am most thankful for it is the opportunity to be with my immediate family – my husband and two adult sons for a long weekend.  I am anticipating a lot of baking, eating, movies, games and conversations together.  Next, I am thankful for the community of Twin Parks Montessori Schools – the teachers and staff who are my colleagues, the parents who are our partners in development of the most precious children in our care.  Thank you for being a part of my life!

What is an Iconic Sage? Dr. Virginia Varga

Posted on by

A dictionary will tell you that an icon is a person who is the object of great attention and devotion and that a sage is a wise person. The person who fits that description is Dr. Virginia Varga. Dr. Varga is the infant and toddler core curriculum instructor for adults who are in the process of becoming a certified Montessori teacher. With over 40 years experience in Montessori Education, she is truly a pioneer.

We are hosting Dr. Varga for a day long professional development opportunity for teachers and an Parent Education evening on Monday, November 11, 2013 from 6:30 to 8:30 PM. Please enjoy this glimpse of what Dr. Varga has to offer and a flyer with details about our event.
