A philosophy for life

In my personal life, Montessori´s philosophy has changed a lot the way I see the world, the way I treat others, the respect I feel for each and every species, the way I see my students and the way I now try to educate my children. As someone that was raised in the traditional way, this has represented a big challenge to me. During this process, I have struggled with so many habits I used to have. Fortunately, the knowledge and experience I have gathered throughout the years have helped me eradicate such old habits.

This does not mean that my parents, teachers, and other mentors were wrong because they followed a traditional educational method. Instead, today I recognize that they did only what they thought it was the best for me. I will always be thankful for helping me be the person I am now. Yet, thanks to the  Montessori´s philosophy I have become a better version of myself. Moreover, I have now the opportunity of transmitting all that knowledge to the ones I love the most: my family and students.

Having all this knowledge about education, pedagogy and Montessori principles, makes me certain that there are other ways to educate, in more humane and natural ways. If these methods are properly performed, they lead to great results.

It’s wonderful to know that there is nothing most important than giving a kid self-confidence, caring about emotional stability, being a guide that might encourage him to discover his natural abilities, and providing him with a proper environment full of love and faith. Yes! Faith in our children, being sure that someday and somehow by nature, they will materialize the essence they were born with. I see this happening so often, I experience it day by day. When I see that neuroscience considers the Montessori Method as the best option, my faith on it grows stronger. Moreover, when I see Montessori kids who have become important characters in our society,  people whose achievements had marked us such as Mark Zuckerberg programmer, philanthropist and creator of Facebook, Gabriel Garcia Marquez writer, novelist, story teller and scriptwriter, Cher, singer, actress and composer, Larry Page, entrepreneur and creator of Google, Jeff Bezos, creator of Amazon, George Clooney, actor, producer, and scriptwriter, Beyonce, singer, dancer, actress, composer and record manager, or Joshua Bell violinist, and so many others that I could not finish listing. Those people have a great life and social abilities, they are strong, critical minded, independent, and creative, and more importantly, full of  self-love and confidence that made them reach all their goals.

Whoever is reading this text right now, whose path has led to the Montessori´s philosophy should never doubt that Montessori is the best that could happen to them just like it happened to me.

UNA FILOSOFÍA DE VIDA

En mi vida personal la filosofía Montessori ha marcado de una manera muy importante la forma en la que ahora veo el mundo, mi trato hacia los que me rodean, el respeto por cada ser y especie que lo habita, la forma en que veo a los niños y el modo de educar a mis hijos ha significado una gran labor que no ha resultado fácil como un adulto que fue educado de forma tradicional. Me ha sido muy complicado romper con ciertos patrones y paradigmas que poco a poco se disipan con el conocimiento y experiencia que con los años adquiero. Esto  no significa que los actores de mi educación estuvieran mal por enseñarme de la forma tradicional, más bien  hoy reconozco que simplemente mis padres y quienes estuvieron detrás de mi formación hicieron lo que creyeron que estaba bien para mí, de lo cual  siempre estaré agradecida pues gracias a ellos soy quien soy; sin embargo gracias a que tuve la oportunidad de conocer la filosofía Montessori puedo decir que hoy soy una  mejor versión  de mi misma, y lo que es aún mejor tengo la oportunidad de transmitirlo a quien más amo mi familia y alumnos.

El conocer y saber ahora lo que sé respecto a la educación, pedagogía y principios de esta filosofía me hacen ver que existen otras formas más humanas, más naturales y que dan aún más resultado de ser bien aplicadas.

Me resulta maravilloso  saber que no hay nada más importante que transmitirle a un niño  seguridad,   confianza en sí mismo, anteponiendo siempre la estabilidad emocional, ayudándolo a descubrir y explotar sus habilidades,  proveyéndole de un ambiente adecuado de amor y de fe de que en algún momento potencializarán por si solos eso que de forma nata traen en su esencia.

Lo vivo, lo experimento, lo compruebo día a día, y mi fe se acrecienta cuando ahora la neurociencia considera a la educación Montessori como la mejor opción, cuando veo a niños Montessori convertidos en personajes relevantes que han marcado y dejado gran huella en la sociedad como un Mark Zukember programador, filántropo y creador de Facebook,  como un Gabriel García Márquez escritor, novelista cuentista y guionista, como una Cher cantante actriz y compositora,  como un Larry page empresario y creador de Google, como un Jeff Bezos creador de Amazon, cómo un George Clooney, actor productor y guionista, como una Beyonce cantante, bailarina, actriz, compositora y directora discográfica, o cómo un Joshua Bell violinista, y así otros tantos que no acabaría de citar. Personas con grandes habilidades de vida, habilidades sociales, fuertes, críticas, independientes, creativas, y lo que es aun mejor,   con amor y respeto propio que aunado a la confianza en sí mismos hizo que lograran alcanzar todas sus metas.

Quien me esté leyendo ahora y se haya topado con la filosofía Montessori que no dude jamás que  como a mí es lo mejor que les pudo pasar.

    For all her very East German experience (and, in 1990 at least, appearance), Merkel was actually born in West Germany, in the city-port of Hamburg. Not that she remembered much about her time there. Within weeks of her birth in July 1954, her father Horst, a Lutheran pastor, accepted a post in the East German province of Brandenburg, and although the family enjoyed certain perks (two cars; greater freedom to travel) her upbringing and world view was essentially an East German one.
