While reading the SL Tribune on Sunday, January 6, 2013, Robyn came across an article written by Angela Choberka, a fellow Montessori teacher in Utah, about the rights of teachers in Utah schools to carry guns in school. Her view on the matter resonated truth for the Administration at MCS in that we believe heartily in Maria Montessori's stance on global peace. Her curriculum is written so carefully as to include many lessons and practices that teach children to solve problems peacefully and with care and respect for their peers. Montessori was nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize and her legacy of peace in education continues to this day. We are proud to share her philosophy at MCS.
