Beyond Labor Day

Dr. Maria Montessori was quoted as saying "the greatest sign of success for the teacher is to be able to say 'the children are now working as if I did not exist'". It was very early in the year for the lead teacher to step away for a week, but between the wonderful support of Ms. Paula and your fantastic children, they did exactly that when Ms. Heidi was out sick for the week following Labor Day. Bread Making lessons, Flower Cutting, Chess lessons, finally completing the moveable alphabet that had been spilled, and Community Peace Meeting on Friday, the week went on brilliantly without me! Dr. Montessori would be proud.
