Toronto's Lost Villages: A Blog

The Jigsaw Puzzle King Blog

I’ve been a Montessori teacher (of 9 - 12 year olds) for about twenty-five years.

The Great Story of Language or the Great Story of Math are stories that help inspire children to wonder and to appreciate humanity’s greatest accomplishments.
