Aubrey Hargis has been a Montessori and progressive education advocate ever since she can remember. 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. Parenting her own children is both a great challenge and a great joy. Using the Montessori philosophy in her home gives her a lot of useful perspective on how to meet their needs and her own!
