As a former Montessori student, I am thrilled to be part of Capital Day School’s growing Montessori program. I love watching children’s eyes light up when they figure out a mathematical algorithm, relate a work of literature to their own experience, or discover a captivating detail in nature. It is truly an honor to accompany children in developing their unique gifts and exploring the fascinating world in which we live.
