How Important is Empathy in our Classrooms?

As a Montessori teacher, my ultimate goal is much bigger than getting my children through their exams, it’s much bigger than allowing them to reach their full potential, it’s greater than graduation ceremonies, grades or rankings.

As a Montessori teacher, my ultimate learning objective is world peace. It may seem like a big goal, but if we all work together and focus on empathy, it’s achievable.

The two things I’ve learned in my career are that no matter how big a persons smile is, no matter what you may think is going on at home, you never know what’s going on under the surface. You never know what people are going through or what they’ve been through and we should always demonstrate empathy towards anyone we meet.

The second thing I’ve learned is that I hate seeing people cry. When they cry, I cry too and it’s because I always imagine myself in their shoes.

‘If there’s one skill that can change the world it’s empathy!’

No matter what we think or who we meet, let’s love each other, hear their stories, hold their hand, hug then, invite them in, welcome each other, offer help, smile, say hello.

No matter how small our gesture, it demonstrates empty and understanding.
