The Purpose of this Site

Though the word "revolution" is thrown around a lot these days, I think that it is fair to say that a quiet revolution is going on in education.  Though the vast majority of education still consists of public education and private schools teaching in a traditional, structured, academic way, there are more and more small experiments happening in education, even if they consist of a teacher creating a new small school of five children out of her home or of a public school poorly implementing Montessori philosophy.

The purpose of this web site is to advocate the creation of more learning experiments and to help inspire the creation of new approaches to learning and education.

I'm currently working as a Montessori teacher for a lower elementary classroom at Pines Montessori, in the Houston area.
