Why are you involved with Montessori Education?
We chose Montessori for our children because of the underlying philosophy of “follow the child”. This approach allows children to be individuals, and to use their personal passions as ignition in the learning process.
When did you commence at Montessori International College?
I was originally here for 4 years as a parent, including lots of volunteer work through the Parent Ambassador Program. 2017 was my first year in an “ïnside” position.
How would you describe what you do?
As Librarian, my task is to make the extensive (and growing) resources of the library accessible to meet student and staff needs. Accessibility includes books (and more) being findable both on the shelves and in the catalogue. When resources are lent out and leave the library, maintaining accessibility means we know who has what and when we can expect those resources to return for the use of others.
What’s your favourite thing about your role?
The MIC LIbrary is full of fabulous and fascinating books on pretty much the whole range of subjects (LOTS of animal books!). I love to help the children find something that will both inform and delight, whether for research or pleasure – and hopefully both.
