Happy Birthday Maria Montessori!

Maria-Montessori-Google-DoodleToday is Maria Montessori’s 144th birthday. At McGuffey we always try to think and talk about Maria Montessori on her birthday each year, since she developed the teaching method we use in our classrooms. However, Montessori herself explains it this way:

“It is not true that I invented what is called the Montessori Method. I have studied the child, I have taken what the child has given me and expressed it, and that is what is called the Montessori Method.”

– Maria Montessori, The Montessori Method

If you’re curious about the Google Doodle above, here (http://www.google.com/doodles/maria-montessoris-142nd-birthday) is a little note about the Google Doodle from the doodler herself, who was a Montessori preschool, elementary, and middle school student.
