Maria Montessori was born in the province of Ancona, Italy, in 1870. Her parents encouraged her to become a teacher, one of the few careers open to women of that era. Reluctant to accept a traditional role, she sought and won admission to the University of Rome Medical School. In 1896, she became the first female graduate.
On the staff of the University, she took a special interest in the process by which young children learn. She founded the Casa dei Bambini (Children's House), an innovative child care program, to study childhood learning further. Her work led to a quiet revolution in educational theory and practice, the Montessori Method. Through her research, writings, and lectures, Dr. Montessori became an internationally respected authority on education.
Today's worldwide network of Montessori schools is the product of her insight, originality, and untiring dedication.
