About the trainers
Pilar is a former Montessori child who re-discovered Montessori at the age of 30. She did her Master's degree in Montessori Education and trained to be a Primary and Elementary AMI Montessori guide. She also became a certified Positive Discipline classroom and parent facilitator.
For a long time, her happy place was in the Montessori classroom. Over the course of twelve years, she guided Primary and Elementary children at three Montessori schools. Her two children attended Montessori programs from the time they were toddlers, and they followed the Montessori principles at home.
Sadly, the disturbing trend towards increased academic pressure and standardized testing eventually crept into their local Montessori community. So they made the best decision EVER - they jumped into homeschooling!
Through her company Mainly Montessori she guides and empowers parents who want to homeschool with the Montessori approach. In addition to her online mentorship work, Pilar also runs a Montessori homeschool learning community in the mountains of Southern California, where she lives with her husband, two elementary-aged children, a dog and a bunny.
Maria has been informally homeschooling since her oldest daughter was born. Homeschooling was not something she considered as an educational option but it was definitely brewing in their home during the preschool years. When they had to enroll their first born in school, homeschooling became a viable option. Being raised in traditional educational systems, she wanted to use a ‘different’ method of education with her daughters. The universe of homeschooling is vast but when she learned of Maria Montessori in her early mom years Dr Montessori's philosophy immediately appealed to her. As a former career counselor who was consumed in the world of higher education and being an agent of social change, she was fascinated by how Maria Montessori worked with children whom society did not want to invest time in and viewed as ‘lacking educational potential’. Dr Montessori believed in the potential of every child and that children should develop intrinsic motivation! She knew then that Dr Montessori's philosophy about children was aligned with her values.
