Autumn Wilson – The Beauty and Genius of Montessori
Autumn Wilson is a Montessori Guide (teacher) and a mother of four. Dr. Maria Montesssori, an Italian creator of Montessori Method of Education, once said “education should no longer be mostly imparting of knowledge, but must take a new path, seeking the release of human potentialities.” Four year olds are taught to read and write before the hand is ready. They are calm and disciplined with freedom of movement to discover knowledge independently. They use blocks of letters and numbers to form words and add numbers. Autumn showed a 2 minute movie of four year olds moving independently between writing and math exercises.
