Thanks to Tomorrow’s Promise, the Montessori School of Huntsville for sponsoring the September Chamber Small Business Breakfast. Director and Founder, Kaye Boehning shared, “I have a master’s degree in education and I am a certified Montessori teacher. Montessori is the only educational method founded by a doctor using the scientific method for what’s best for the child. We teach children using a hands-on individualized curriculum that expects mastery before a student moves on to the next level. I’m sure you’ve heard of Google, Wikipedia and Amazon. Their founders were all Montessori students. We teach children how to think, not what to think. Whether you have a child or not, you need to come by and see why we are different from traditional schools. Come see why I have dedicated my like to making a difference in people’s lives where it matters. The first five years last a lifetime.”
