Hi, I’m Pilar. I attended Montessori schools from preschool and through the third grade. After graduating from college with a degree in Hospitality Management, I worked in Human Resources for Hyatt Hotels and then started my own successful event planning business.
In 2007, just before turning 30, I began meditating on what I wanted to do with the rest of my life. I heard a very clear voice inside my head tell me, “You need to work with children.” Armed only with this message – and with absolutely no experience in the field of education – I approached the AMI training center in my city. And that’s where my Montessori journey began.
I now hold the AMI Primary and Elementary diplomas and have worked with both 3-6 and 6-9 year-old groups. My son, Zachary, was born at home in 2012 and my daughter, Nadia, followed in his footsteps three years later. Zachary attends a wonderful Montessori school and I stay home with Nadia.
“The Full Montessori” is my personal journal and soapbox. I write in order to deepen my own understanding of Montessori; I write to share Montessori with other parents; and I write because it calms my soul.
Thank you for following our Montessori journey. I hope you find the support and inspiration you’re looking for… And don’t forget to join our growing community on Facebook!
