Montessori education information from a Montessori teacher and Mom. Personal art work and journal entries about my life as a busy Mom of three sons ranging in age from 5 years to 19 years.
My hope: To create a place where parenting questions can be answered and conversations as well as ideas shared.

Happy Birthday John Chapman
Wearing pots on their heads....
Reading Johnny Appleseed together under an apple tree.
We introduced John Chapman, our first Peace Maker of the school year. His picture now hangs in the Peace Corner in our classroom. By June he will be in good company, 8 other Peace Makers will join him. Each month we will introduce a new person to the children who believed in peaceful conflict resolution. A person they can relate to in some way, who loved children and respected all.
John Chapman was such a man. Ask your children who he was, what he did, where he traveled. Children are our greatest teachers.
PEACE be with you,
