Startin' Somethin New
In August of this year I started my second job which is at (by the title I'm sure you've guessed) Montessori Academy. If you haven't heard of this school, they are a private school based on an education method created by Dr. Maria Montessori. The learning process is child-centered and based on her scientific observations of children from birth to adulthood. It is an approach that values the development of the whole child (physical, social, emotional, and cognitive).
I absolutely love working there. My official job title is an Aftercare teacher and I (more or less) take care of, aid in their kindness toward others, and watch the children after the regular school day has ended till about six in the afternoon. I work with kids from the ages of 1-3 in toddler and also 4-6 in primary. It is an incredibly positive atmosphere, and working and being around kids is such a wonderful and rewarding experience.
I’ve always loved kids and Montessori is a school I am incredibly passionate about. I want to adopt one day, and I hope to be able to send them to a Montessori school. If you haven't heard of them please look into it. They are a wonderful place for children, and I am lucky to witness first-hand how incredibly well-mannered and independent these children are at such a young age.
