“Enlightening, eye-opening, fun, magical, inspiring, enriching, insightful and humbling” are some of the descriptions shared by participants of the Silent Journey & Discovery program at Mountain Shadows this past weekend. On Friday evening the MSMS parents and guests gathered for a silent journey through all of the classroom environments. On Saturday morning they enjoyed the discovery portion of the program by working with the Montessori materials and receiving lessons from the teachers. Led by esteemed AMI Montessorian Barbara Gordon, this annual event is one the most poignant ways to experience Montessori education through the eyes of a child and to have an in depth experience with the entire Montessori education continuum. As one parent wrote, “I now have a better understanding of how my child learns, what interests him, and why. I also understand why the children enjoy coming to school at Mountain Shadows each day.”
