Feeling honoured to bring montessori method to the Himalayas. Such an amazing experience to see these wonderful women so keen to want to improve the education in Nepal.
Each one will go out into the community with a fresh perspective on how to teach, what the educational intentions are and how best to motivate her students towards independence.
Today we learned how to set children on a path of discovery in mathematics using various Montessori materials.
We spoke about the fundamental essentials for every teacher. Teachers have three core jobs:
1. To set clear expectations by modelling the results and behaviour they want from their children.
2. To be clear about the learning objectives and the reason why we are learning this subject.
3. To build to confidence of each child and allowing them to fail and learn from this failure.
One lady was so shy during today’s class that she found it hard to talk, when she spotted the square number we all gave her a rounded applause, her smile widened and her confidence grew. By the end of the class she was teaching the whole group.
What an amazing day I’ve had.
I hope yours was also lovely ❤️
