A huge fan of Maria's Montessori method and philosophy. Dreamer, lifelong learner, and hard worker.

I found Montessori Method, as scientifically proven, and am using it to better the conditions of the children, parents, educators and elderly.

My biggest values are wholeness, balance, and clarity. Balance of freedom and responsibility, clarity of communication, and relationships. As well, as respect. According to these values I'm trying to live my life and luckily, I have a tool to share these values with others. It's called Montessori Method. I believe, that everything happens for a reason, and if I'm on this path I want to spread this philosophy as far, as I can. To help with building a better civilization, with a higher level of consciousness, and communication with oneself and others.
