I start Co-teaching on Monday! I cannot wait; finally I get to do what I love. No, I'm not a lead in the Montessori classroom just yet, but that's okay, I enjoy gaining more experience and knowledge on my journey. Dancing Moose Montessori is a part of my path, and I'm so thankful to this school. They helped me find out about the Montessori Program that was so new to Westminster College. It's so exciting. Plus, it's a beautiful school located next to a country club! WOW.
Here are some pictures of my new school:

Some people might think that the name is odd, but listen to why it's called Dancing Moose Montessori: "The name Dancing Moose Montessori School is connected to the founders' philosophical beliefs about curriculum. It emphasizes the creative lens that might be applied to nature. A moose, indigenous to Utah, may be seen simply as a long-legged rather awkward animal. For others, though, this magnificent animal moving swiftly through the wooded mountains might indeed be perceived as a dancing moose. DMMS encourages the creative, free-flowing ideas that individuals bring to the curriculum. Creative expression is applied to every aspect of the DMMS curriculum."
I'm so excited to start this journey!! I hope I'm taking the right path, I've worked so hard, and Grad school is just beginning...so it's going to be a long year :) I can't wait to make the most of it.
My Montessori Program really was the best. Here are some pictures:
OH, and today is my 8 month anniversary with my sweetie!! We're celebrating tomorrow though. He's the best.
