When you discovered Montessori,
you knew there was something special about it.
The materials were ingenious, the classrooms were gorgeous...
but there was something more.
Something about... humanity.
Something about how the adults viewed the child.
Something about what we're really trying to do in education.
So, what is that something that we're trying to do in education?
We're empowering our students to be their best selves.
Yes! That's why we're here!
So how do we keep this goal front and center when a child is "misbehaving"?
How do we decide what "misbehavior" is in the first place?
How do we decide when it's appropriate to intervene?
How do we avoid resorting to old methods of control and coercion?
What do we say and how do we say it?
