Greetings to you from the beginning of a new cycle of learning and community building at Greene Towne Montessori School! As part of our opening faculty and staff in-service meetings this year, I invited all faculty and staff to reflect on their intention for their work, each and every day. 

 

Using a maker’s kit, every member of the faculty and staff stamped out their words of intention using a hammer and letter stamps onto a stainless steel washer necklace or bracelet. Some people chose an individual word, while others chose a word together that named their intention as a teaching team. 

 

As teaching teams or as individuals, we reflected on…

What does the world need more of? 

What does success look like to you?

What do you want to be at the heart of your work each day?

How are you making a difference in this world?

What is most important to you?

 

The words that our faculty and staff members chose are a powerful illustration of the Greene Towne community’s strong dedication to children and passion for their work. 

What word would you choose? Let me and your child’s teachers know!peace

joy

hugs

love

cultivate 

harmony

magic

growth

trust the process

patience

hope

gaudium & spes (joy & hope)

creative

caring

be kind

kind 

be the calm

 

Making the values that underpin our work visible is one more way we strengthen that shared vision. What word would you choose? Let me and your child’s teachers know!
