Leaving a Legacy: Passing Montessori to the Next Generation
Loveless, Sylvia
Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, v24 n3 p30-34 Fall 2012
For each of the past 19 years, the American Montessori Society has chosen to recognize one Montessorian as an AMS Living Legacy. Recipients are honored at the AMS annual conference for their salient work or volunteerism in the Montessori field and their dedication and leadership that has made an impact on the AMS community. It seems fitting that AMS has established this tradition, since Dr. Maria Montessori's own legacy has shaped the educational network in which educators participate. Yet, technological advancements are occurring at an unprecedented speed, and educational institutions must adapt their methodology to reflect these changes. In this article, the author discusses how educators can retain the integrity of Montessori education and still meet the needs of a rapidly changing world. She offers suggestions on how to inspire others and continue the Montessori schools in all their current forms.
