This past weekend I attended the the American Montessori Society’s Annual Conference in Chicago. The programming was superb! One of the keynote speakers, Dr. Yong Zhao had a strong positive message about Montessori education and how allowing children to make choices and to learn from mistakes builds confidence and creativity. Dr. Zhao’s research indicates that compared to other nations, the United States does not score well on standardized tests which leads to left-brained thinkers. However, what our students do well is score very high on confidence. Passion for learning and happiness attending school should not be underrated. At Twin Parks, we celebrate the talents of each individual student. According to Dr. Zhao, a diversity of talents supports the growth of a community and of a nation.
