Welcome to Montessori 101! We serve the Montessori community by providing a place for parents and teachers around the world to discuss how Montessori philosophy can be used both in the home and in the classroom. We take a special interest in empowering parents, and we hope to inspire a new generation of Montessori teachers.

Aubrey Hargis

Aubrey is the founder and executive director of The Child Development Institute of the Redwoods, and the creator of the Montessori 101 group on Facebook. She has taught children aged from toddlers through elementary school in both the public and private school sector and holds both an M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction and an American Montessori Society certificate in Lower Elementary. She is currently homeschooling her children among the foggy city hills of San Francisco. The coastal cliffs and the redwood trails beckon her almost every weekend for another family adventure. In Montessori 101, she finds nothing as thrilling as seeing a parent fall in love with the method and embrace Montessori as a way of life.
