Justin’s Quote from the IHM Yearbook

I have been in Montessori for all my life. I have had many lessons that I have enjoyed, but one is my favorite. That lesson is the checkerboard. The reason I like the checkerboard is because it was one of the first ways I learned to do multiplication with three digits. In the future, I picture myself at the Navy school in Annapolis becoming a nuclear engineer. ~Justin Dougherty
