During her time as a Montessori assistant, Anju noticed that children were given freedom of movement and choice while working with the concrete materials. She also noticed that the teacher’s role was to guide the children, versus the teacher being the primary focus of the children. “I found myself in awe of the way the children interacted with one another and the materials of  the classroom, and I found myself asking the lead teacher an endless number of questions derived from my own personal interest.”

“My inspiration from the Montessori method is founded on the results achieved by my students year after year. I truly believe that my students also learn valuable life lessons that may not be presented to them in traditional schools.” Anju believes that the Montessori method empowers students to make decisions which build their self-confidence and encourage positive traits which may not be reinforced in traditional classrooms.”
