The Making of a Montessori Teacher - DVD (1)

Parents Are the Child’s First Teachers

In the world of education, there is a tendency for many people to stay at the level of the intellect, never going to the top of the pyramid, which is spirit.

Dr. Montessori always incorporated nondenominational spiritual values into her method, seeking to educate her students not only through the mind, but through the heart as well.

Teachers – Spiritual Preparation is Vital!

Maria Montessori taught that spiritual preparation for teachers is paramount. In this remarkable DVD, Dr. Elizabeth Caspari, her student and friend, delivers this message with insight and clarity.

Mary Ellen Maunz, taught directly by Dr. Caspari, has been a Montessori teacher, administrator and teacher-trainer since 1971. She lectures throughout the world and prepares a new generation of Montessori teachers for the challenges of the 21st century.

Learn how to educate all the facets of the child's being by first recognizing his individual needs, and then systematically meeting these needs. Both teachers and teachers-to-be will find tremendous value in these presentations that focus on the self-transformational core of Maria Montessori’s message.
