How'd It Go The Last Year We Were Together At The Fair?
2019 was an exciting celebration of Montessori’s 5th year at the Fair! Here are some highlights:
- In 2019, we had the first report of literal tears of joy from a visiting child who was so relieved to be “learning the Montessori way now” in Brainerd after finding out about Montessori education at the Montessori Booth in 2018. Sharing the favorite quote of the fair: “I’m good at school, the Montessori way!”
- Volunteers and visitors shared delight in many new materials offered by loan and made by hand from MNMN Board Members and St. Kates training programs
- The new MN Training Programs Summary document was valued by current and aspiring educators who visited and volunteered. And it's now available on our website!
- We met many families who found Montessori schools after visiting the State Fair booth. This year we experienced multiple adults sharing that they found new careers, or made a shift in their current career, through the booth - becoming Montessori trained!
