I am a contemporary art lover, a philosophy nerd, a Montessori enthusiast and an all-round people person. I fell in love with visual arts when I was a young child, and it was through my experiences in the field of arts and culture that I started working with children and discovered that I was also passionate about education. Unsurprisingly, my favourite areas of the Montessori Curriculum are those concerned with satisfying children’s curiosity, engaging their imagination, fostering their creativity and advancing their cultural development.
I am in agreement with the Montessori’s principal that self-actualization is achieved when children are provided with the opportunity to exercise their inner tendencies to develop at their own pace in a prepared environment. My goal as an educator is to act as a positive force in this environment, ensuring that it is clean, safe, healthy, captivating and full of interesting and challenging materials. Most importantly, I am a strong believer in the Montessori humanistic axiom that each child is different and unique and that their processes of individuation should be respected and supported. I hope to help children with their holistic development by encouraging them to pursue their interests and passions so that they can grow to become confident, independent and creative individuals.
