Montessori School Jacob Maris
When I finished my Teacher Training College, I did not yet have my Montessori diploma. After I worked at a Montessori school for three days, I made sure to quickly change that!
Maria Montessori’s most important quote is:
“Nothing goes into the mind that does not first go through the hands.”
The educational materials by Nienhuis and Heutink ensure that we can apply Montessori’s quote to the classroom.
I have been a teacher for eight years now, of which 7 years at Montessori schools. Many educational materials were invented long ago, but they remain very important in the modern classroom.
Sometimes children transfer from other schools to my classroom. It brings me joy to provide them their first Montessori lesson. For instance, after she played with the large multiplication board, one child said to me with wide-open eyes: “I finally understand what I do!”
