“The child who has felt a strong love for his surroundings and for all living creatures, who has discovered joy and enthusiasm in work, gives us reason to hope that humanity can develop in a new direction.” -- Dr. Maria Montessori

"Creating a classroom full of love for each other and for all our living things brings me great peace each day," says Ms. Sara, referencing her favorite Maria Montessori quote (above).
