What are some of your most favourite things?
San Remo has been a fave since I was little. I had a lot of goldfish as pets. I played the flute. My love of Montessori began when I visited my sister where she was teaching (a long time ago) and my oldest nephew was in casa. I observed in his class and he was obsessed with maps and it was amazing to see such small children engaged and loving the materials.
