Maria Tecla Artemisia Montessori was born on August 31, 1870. She was an Italian physician and educator. Her educational method, which is still in use today in many public and private schools throughout the world, is a method of education that is based on hands-on learning, self-directed activity, and play in a collaborative environment. In a Montessori classroom, children engage and facilitate their learning with creative choices. The classroom culture and the highly trained teacher(s) offer age-appropriate activities to guide the process.
