Sometimes I learn a lot from my son's eyes. I never see the excitement in wanting to go to school as much as his friends in a Montessori nursery program at 18-months old. In less than 8-months, I become a firm believer of the Montessori philosophy and extensively learn more about it through research, teacher training, working in preschools, to opening the first-ever bilingual Montessori school with both English and Chinese (Mandarin) daily curriculums along the coast of Pacific Ocean between San Francisco and Half Moon Bay.
Welcome to Neo Immersion Montessori School, and invite you to hear more about my journey through your eyes (see video).
