We certainly didn’t plan it to be this way but this week, February 26 – March 2, happens to be Montessori Education week! For our conversation this week, we continue our conversation on the broad topic of education and explore the subject of the Montessori education model with Syneva Barrett.
My youngest daughter attends a Montessori school and my wife is one assignment away for receiving her Montessori Certification. That being said, the idea of Montessori is still foreign to me. I found my conversation with Syneva very enlightening.
