One of the greatest women of our time!

When Maya Angelou spoke to 3,500 Montessori educators at Madison Square Garden in 2007 it was to celebrate 100 years of Montessori education.  Maya is an inspirational speaker and person.  She can recite poetry, sing songs and speak as if you are in her living room and she is telling you a story.  She told us that Montessori teachers were “rainbows in the clouds”.  What a gifted person and  mother who chose Montessori education for her children.

My sister sent me some Maya Angelou-isms today and I thought that I would share a few with you.

“I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles three things:  a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.”

“I’ve learned that people will forget what  you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
