Living Montessori Now


Hello! I'm Deb Chitwood, mom of two successful homeschool graduates, a Montessori educator and writer, and a former Montessori teacher and homeschooler. I am also author of the ebook Montessori at Home or School: How to Teach Grace and Courtesy. Lastly, I am a blogger who loves sharing ideas and activities at Living Montessori Now, as well as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and Google Plus!

I am happy to be here as an affiliate of Montessori for the Earth's affordable, online Montessori programs for birth to age nine. The founder is a Montessori-trained 3 to 6 and 6 to 9 teacher with 25 years of experience. I met her on the Internet many years ago through her Montessori blogs and joined her Montessori Bloggers Network where we support and network with new and established Montessori-inspired bloggers.

If you make a purchase, when you create your username and password (for accessing your Montessori), there is a Q & A box for me--make sure to check it so I can get the referral! Thanks you so much!
