Why do we enjoy Teaching?

Teaching is a challenging job with many unique frustrations, but the rewards of teaching are numerable. Some of the many benefits include the following.

what is montessori?

Montessori had many accomplishments with one being the Montessori Method which is a method of educating young children that stresses development of a child’s own initiative and natural abilities, especially through practical play. This method allowed children to develop at their own pace and provided educators with a better understanding of child development

More than transmitting knowledge, teaching is about inspiring others to discover their purpose and potential
