My Philosophy of Education

13 Aug

Back in 1993, when I was still an undergrad at Macalester, I took a class called Philosophy of Education. As a education major (along with Anthropology) it was a required course. It was one of them most important courses I took in my preparation to become a teacher.

Our Final project was to write our personal ‘manifesto’ or philosophy of education….and to design the ideal school. I’m still working on that document. My philosophy of education is a work in progress, a living document.

Entries like the one below from The Full Montessori remind me that I’m now on the right path. I taught for almost 2 decades in traditional schools before I found out that Montessori existed.
