This morning Ana visited Gettysburg Montessori Charter School (GMCS), a wonderful, well organized, warm school in Adams county. At GMCS, Montessori education blends with traditional elements to bridge the gap between public school and private school. Montessori emphasizes the development of the whole child: cognitive, social, and emotional, while the charter aspect requires state testing for peer monitoring and learning measurements. Children in a Montessori class learn through hands-on activities while teachers facilitate. Ana had the pleasure to meet with the school’s CEO, Faye Plaso, who was named one of the Leading Ladies in Adams County by Celebrate Gettysburg Magazine.
