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!
