It's Official...

Yours truly is now known at home as "MACTE Mama!" given the successful completion of the Montessori Accreditation Council for Teacher Education (MACTE) accredited American Montessori Society (AMS) training course!  Not only were Little Miss and I greeted by my dear husband and two boys with flowers and gifts at the airport, but also, look what awaited me at home:

Festive flowers, decadent cake (our favorite:  Chocolate Ganache!), congratulatory card and peridot earrings!
Yes, I have already mentioned how wonderful my dear husband is and now, I'm confident you must see it as well....!  Here is a close up of those earrings:

As peridot is the gem of Maria Montessori's birth month, my husband presented these to me as a symbol of my "knowledge and dedication to the Montessori Method." 

I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to complete this training and forever grateful for the unending support of my family!

Thank you! Thank you!  Thank you!

Now, on to the Master's program at St. Kate's...
