Mohammed Fazalullah Siddiqui
Fazal holds a bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from JNTU. His interaction with the Montessori environments gave him insights about the Montessori principles as he observed that everything in the environment suited the needs of children – the height of the shelves, the perfectly sized tables and chairs. The adult and the materials were just there to serve the developmental needs of the children and not to pollute it with unnecessary hurdles. What most appealed to him was that the children were positively bursting with confidence. Their manner held an aura of satisfaction as they left for home. He knew then that a Montessori environment was the place where a lasting education would happen – an education for life. These experiences instilled a desire in him to know more about the Montessori pedagogy and he did his AMI 6- 12 Diploma in Montessori Pedagogy from Navadisha Montessori Foundation, Chennai.
As a Montessori Guide at Pebble Creek Life School his aim is to keep his environment child-friendly, bright, inspiring and, most of all, to see that overall glow of satisfaction and happiness is present on children’s faces as they leave for home. He does this because he loves what Dr Maria Montessori has said,
“One test of the correctness of educational procedures is the happiness of the child.”
