A Muehlemann Moment! Community, by admin, April 26, 2016, Mary Claire, speaking at her VdM 6th Grade Graduation George Muehlemann, father of Mary Claire (VdM graduate) and George David (VdM 6th year), shared the following: “Seriously? This would take me a week to write down all the things our children do as a result of Montessori… You’ll love this! MCM was asked to interview two teachers applying for a middle school teaching position. She is the ONLY child in the entire school being asked to participate on the committee. We are very proud parents, and Montessori opened her mind to be the progressive thinker she is. This kid doesn’t stop thinking or analyzing. Certainly not a follower. Certainly not a child trained in a desk nor in a lecture-type environment. Thank you, Villa!!!” Flower planting in the Primary in 2006. Mary Claire had already been at VdM for a year at this point! Villa di Maria’s treasured founder, Pearl Vanderwall, with Mary Claire and George David. This special day in the spring of 2014 was Mary Claire’s last official hot lunch “cheffing” experience in the Upper Elementary. This one needs a frame and a place on the wall at Villa di Maria, agreed? Related posts: George David A Cronan Montessori Moment Our First Montessori Moment. Eoghan at West Point.
