One of the greatest parts about Montessori are the educators

One of the greatest parts about Montessori are the educators. I am eternally grateful for the way my teachers pushed me to grow and learn.

I had teachers that had opposite personalities: one was kind and fun but surprisingly tough, never tolerating any kind of disrespect, but understanding the person behind the remarks.

The other was intelligent and experienced, with a certain wisdom about the world that made them unbeatable at chess and able to help me work through the ups and downs of becoming a teenager.

I believe a Montessori educator is the epitome of a great teacher, understanding both the intelligence and the emotions of a student.

Montessori education made me a self-directed and independent learner

Montessori education made me a self-directed and independent learner as well as one who thinks outside the box. When it comes to school, I am able to quickly take notes and retain the information which leads to less studying. Time management is another skill that Montessori taught me which comes in handy when trying to create a school/work/social-balance in life.

My Montessori education made it easier for me to learn

My Montessori education made it easier for me to learn. I’m someone who needs to be able to work with my hands to learn how to use or do something. It’s also made me think a little bit more outside of the box and to see things from different perspectives. It also allowed me to use my creativity in ways that perhaps wouldn’t have presented themselves in a traditional education setting.

Through Montessori, I learned to be open to contrasting views

Through Montessori, I learned to be open to contrasting views and to always explore what I am passionate about. . . . While in an integrated-subjects [Montessori] middle school, I explored the role of visual arts in my life which has since become a big part of who I am today.

Since my Montessori education, I have never had issues with time management

Since my Montessori education, I have never had issues with time management. The curriculum that I learned in Montessori more than prepared me for high school and college. . . . My independence and confidence in travel also most certainly comes from my travel experience while in the middle school.

Being able to work at my own pace allowed for true growth

Being able to work at my own pace allowed for true growth as a student, allowing me to focus and understand the concepts provided in a deeper, more coherent, manner. School is not about paperwork — it’s about growing as a person and developing life-long skills.

Montessori sculpted me into the person I am today

Montessori sculpted me into the person I am today while I was malleable enough to facilitate that. While the standardized school system teaches children how to produce, Montessori teaches them how to wonder.

Because of the freedom in a Montessori classroom

Because of the freedom in a Montessori classroom, I naturally pursued those activities that were right at that pleasurable edge of my comfort zone, where I had the most focus and energy. I found that my learning, effort, and initiative were all associated with pleasure and success during the most formative years of my life. I am a UTI Certified Automotive Mechanic and I accomplished my first solo flight and now working towards completion of a private pilot’s license

Montessori showed me the direction in which I needed to go

Montessori showed me the direction in which I needed to go and gave me the tools to get there. It helped me build the resilience to pursue bold goals and instilled a strong sense of belief that I can achieve them. I'm currently working towards my commercial flying license and also attend the Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University/ROTC program.

Through my Montessori education I gained both academic knowledge and life skills

Through my Montessori education I gained both academic knowledge and life skills in a way that was genuinely enjoyable. The Montessori environment allowed me to thrive and capably navigate my formative years. I befriended amazing people who I otherwise would not have formed bonds with, and I was able to travel and go out of my comfort zone. The “Montessori method” pervades my sense of being even today, as I take on new challenges, learn new things, meet new people, and continue to make mistakes and grow. I truly cherish the time I spent in Montessori, as it was a stepping stone that caused me to be the independent, ambitious person that I am today.”
