Episode 14: Reinventing Education (ft. Marcia Hughes)

Join hosts Rob Merritt and Samantha Dahlby as they talk about the Montessori method of teaching with Marcia Hughes, Head of School for the Cedar Valley Montessori School. The group will discuss how this method of teaching can help kids learn at their own pace, how it may offer more opportunities for students with “exceptionalities”, and why innovation in the education sector is paramount to future success.

“Independent, project-based learning was always a forte of what I was engaged in. And Samantha [Dahlby of NewBoCo] suggested that perhaps Cedar Valley Montessori was a little bit similar with younger children. She was right.”
