It was exciting to see the children’s mural (on the left) displayed at the recent International Montessori Congress held at the Oregon Convention Center! The children and Ms. Lauren worked diligently the past few weeks to bring it to life.
Dr. Maria Montessori established the International Congress in 1929 to raise the awareness and understanding of Montessori education. Since then, 25 subsequent Congresses have followed around the world, with one held approximately every four years. It has been nearly 40 years since the Congress was last held in the United States, so Portland was truly blessed to have this celebration of Montessori education!
