On Maya Angelou

By

‘A lifelong self-directed learner, Maya Angelou was a poet, educator, journalist, historian, dancer, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil rights activist, producer, and director who tirelessly encouraged others to develop the best that was in them. It isn’t surprising that she became a Montessori parent. In her keynote address at the American Montessori Society’s 2007 Annual Conference in New York City, she spoke about courage. It takes courage to speak honestly. It takes courage to advocate for peace. It takes courage to rear open-minded, curious children in uncertain times.’

Rest In Peace Maya Angelou.
