Getting Started in the New Year

Well, now that Hand in Hand, the school that I teach at, is on January break, I have some time to create posts for this blog.

My main goal is to share what's going on with the children both in our Montessori classroom and in the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd atrium at Messiah Episcopal Church.

Other goals:
  • To encourage parents and teachers for their ultimate task of raising their children. This includes giving ideas for specific activities and materials that you can do at home or in your school.
  • To educate the general public about Montessori Education and the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.
  • To create a forum for readers to respond with comments and questions.

One of my concerns in doing this blog is that I do not violate any privacy rights of the families whose children will be in the photographs. I hope to get permission from the parents for posting any recognizable photos of their children. For now, I'm just using photos where the children are not recognizable. That is somewhat limiting, but I'll see what I can do. If you are a parent and would allow me to post photos of your child, please respond by sending a comments. One advantage would be that you would be able to print photos of your child the I use in my blog. I will also have a link to my photos so that you can order prints or print yourself.
