The Adventure Begins

I apologize once again for being offline for so long. This time, I have a good excuse. I’ve been busy moving from Oregon to Ohio to go back to school. Tomorrow, I start the Montessori elementary teacher training! If all goes according to plan, in 9 1/2 months I’ll be a certified Montessori teacher, and this time next year, I’ll be setting up my own classroom. I’m hoping to blog about the experience, at least now and then, but the elementary training is a lot of work (it involves turning in around 250 written pages every week), so I don’t know how much time I’ll have.

I’ll be blogging about the elementary (1st to 6th grade) training, but if you’re interested in other ages, my friend Emily will be blogging about the Primary (ages 3-6) training that she’s taking this year, and her friend Zoe is currently blogging about taking the Assistants to Infancy (ages 0-3) and Primary trainings.

Okay, back to trying to find places to put things, cleaning up the piles of cardboard strewn all over the living room, and endeavoring not to keel over in the heat. We Oregonians aren’t so good at humidity.

  1. Wait. 250 pages a week? Nobody told me that when I applied to Italy. Must’ve been lost in translation. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Oh boy, carpal tunnel here we come!! Good luck my friend, I have a feeling you are going to make a kick-ass guide. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aww, thank you! I hope I make a good guide. My trainer-in-training (one of them, we get two!) told me that that’s how much writing/illustrating there is, though fortunately, a lot of the writing happens in class when you’re taking notes. I have to admit, I’m feeling pretty intimidated. Eep!
