NAMC's 20 Lessons from 20 Years: There Is No Shame in “I Don’t Know”


I think it’s fair to say that the older we get and the more we experience, the more we realize that there are a lot of things we don’t know — and that’s okay. Not knowing something is the catalyst for learning. It is the starting point for researching a topic, asking a question, attending a class, or even exploring new lands. And when we can’t find the answer ourselves, which happens sometimes, it is okay to admit that too. Enlisting the help of experts often means that a job is completed more efficiently and far better than if you had done it yourself. They may even teach you something along the way!

As part of NAMC’s anniversary celebration, I have been asked to share 20 lessons that stand out in my experience of providing Montessori teacher training programs worldwide over the past 20 years. We are happy to share the next tip in our series that we are presenting over the next few weeks. I hope you find some of these ideas helpful in your own Montessori journey!
