Montessori Quote of the Day

Quote for 5 December 2020

The first step an intending Montessori teacher must take is to prepare herself. For one thing, she must keep her imagination alive; for while, in the traditional schools, the teacher sees the immediate behaviour of her pupils, knowing that she must look after them and what she has to teach, the Montessori teacher is constantly looking for a child who is not yet there.

Maria Montessori, The Absorbent Mind, p. 252
