Sunita wraps up week 1 of remote learning
We’ve gotten through week one of remote learning and we are all still smiling. We have gone through this week together, apart yet connected. We made it through the first week of social distancing.
I had to remind myself that Montessori education is about process, not product. Whether we are adults in this community who are delivering content to students, or whether we are parents who are receiving content for students, we do not have to be perfect at what we do. We are learning and improving, and if we can model to students that it is okay to make mistakes and learn from them, we will be fine.
I watched Middle School students do their science fair presentations online, and it was so wonderful to see their faces and their voices. I miss the sound and presence of students here at school, but I know they are still learning and connecting with each other virtually. I have a whole new level of respect for technology.—WMS Head of School Sunita Pailoor
