I am part of the primary faculty in the Bay Area
What I like about MNW
A growth plan to bring Montessori to more people and places.
Cats or dogs
I love cats and dogs! I have two cats named Bella and Max, and one dog named Bally. And two Guinea pigs too!
A time of day
Early morning when everything is fresh
A book (or book series)
Anything by Maria Montessori and neuroscience related.
Coast or Mountains?
Both. There is an old Chinese saying "The wise find pleasure in water; the virtuous find pleasure in hills. " :)
