Honoring Martin Luther King Jr.
Updated: Jul 9, 2020
In January, we honor the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr., a fearless leader with a dream that our world could come together in peace. His characteristics of leadership, persistence, and striving to make the world we live in a better place are things that not only should be celebrated but also emulated. It is our goal to instill in our students a great sense of leadership, a passion for helping others, and to strive for peace and justice in our world. Dr. Maria Montessori recognized that the hope for peace lay in the education of children. Every day in our classrooms, as we teach according to the philosophy and curriculum of Dr. Maria Montessori, we are not only teaching our students academics such as reading, writing, and math… we are building their character. It is our hope for each student to go forward in life not only an intelligent individual but an empathetic, caring, and persistent person.
As we celebrate him this month, it is a great opportunity not only to remember Martin Luther King, Jr., but to activate in our life today, and forward, the important characteristics of being a great leader.
