this practical life

New school year, new blog name!

Welcome to this practical life, formerly known as montessori works. Thanks for checking in with me over the last few months, since I did of fall off the edge of the blog world. Once I finished Sewing in the Montessori Classroom I thought I would take a little break — well, that turned into a few months — but now I am back.

I know many people were interested in a PDF version of my book, you can buy it here for $9.99.

Looking forward to sharing many ideas and projects with you this coming year!


Sewing in the Montessori Classroom is here!

I just came back from a wonderful and inspiring weekend at the American Montessori Society Annual Conference in Philadelphia. It was great to meet and talk with so many Montessori enthusiast!

I took 20 copies of my book so I could share it with people who have been instrumental in both my early and current Montessori journey. It was so very exciting to hand someone a book and say “I wrote this book, and I want to give it to you!”

Speaking of which, I wrote this book, and I want to share it with you! All of you have been so important to me these last 2 years (is this blog really almost two years old?). It is currently only available in hardcopy. I am going to have the Kindle and the PDF version set up in the next few days.

I am beyond thrilled to share this journey with you all, thank you.
