Baan Dek

Absorbent Mind

Other Good Things

We sometimes think, we got into Education because we love learning. At Baan Dek, one of our Guiding Principles is, we’re always learning. We’re never done.

It naturally follows that we love engaging in continuing education at weekly staff meetings and on inservice days.

This year, we decided to read Maria Montessori’s The Absorbent Mind together, and discuss at our weekly staff meetings.

We’re reading one chapter a week, which feels like just the right pace to really internalize this rich tome.

Some of us are reading it for the first time, others are familiar with the text, but we’re all learning together. There’s always something new to glean, deeper understanding to be had.

Each Saturday, we’ll share a favorite quote or discussion point over on the Facebook page. We’d love to hear your thoughts, or even have you join along in our little book group!
