Circle is a period in the day where children experience group lessons while learning to be a part of our classroom community. This leads to appropriate participation in all group activities, which is a learned and practiced skill. Everything from social skills, to language to empathy can be gained with practice in circle time. My goal when introducing lessons is to help each child reach their full potential and to let them know that learning is exciting. Each new lesson I introduce piques your child's interest in the next level in each subject.
My goal in teaching like a true Montessori teacher is to follow the child. I hope to create an interest for lifelong learning and curiosity through the Montessori environment and the use of Montessori materials. Our day starts with circle, which is an open discussion format with the children, as well as a time to introduce new lessons to the class. I strive to instill peace in the classroom as well as within the child, with the help of grace and courtesy, which is the base of all learning in a child. I hope to be a role model in the classroom and create a generation of responsible citizens.
My goal as a teacher is to rouse within every child a life-long interest in learning through interaction in a safe, nurturing and stimulating environment. I truly enjoy teaching and believe in the whole development of a child, fostering independence and inspiring intellectual curiosity. Social and cognitive development in my classroom goes hand in hand as the children experience respect and motivation to reflect their own character. I enjoy presenting ideas and concepts through materials and lessons that incorporate variety, creativity and fascinating appeal. When a child is motivated to work, work itself evokes perseverance, patience and the desire to learn more.
Ms. Suma As a Montessori teacher, my goal is to help the child to fulfill his/her potential in a prepared learning environment, which is safe, peaceful and nurturing. I believe in creating an environment in the classroom that will create a lifelong love for learning and the ability to express themselves as confident and unique individuals. Also the environment is prepared in every way for optimal development: physically, cognitively, socially and emotionally, which will liberate children's energy for growth and learning. " Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make him learn things, but by the endeavor always to keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence. " - Maria Montessori
"The child is much more spiritually elevated than is usually supposed. He often suffers, not from too much work, but from work that is unworthy of him."
