A Montessori Moment in Hershey’s Concord Campus Woods

A Montessori Moment in Hershey’s Concord Campus Woods

Bending, reaching, sifting and very gently pulling on the root systems, Ethan and Daniel work with focus. “We are working on the garlic mustard because it is an invasive species” and with enthusiasm, they show me how to identify the plant both before and after its flowering phase.  “This plant came from Europe, – actually England – and the deer there love to eat them.” “Someone brought the plant to North America and the deer here do not like to eat them at all!”  Hershey Montessori School Moment

The two boys work together in rhythm and the enthusiastic chatter is all about the deer, insects and human’s inadvertently causing this great change. Their mathematical minds turn the talk to “each patch has many plants and each plant sheds many seeds. Next year this patch would create thousands more and then the next year those thousands shed more seeds” and Cheryl McGovern, who provides the outdoor education support, offers “yes, they grow exponentially don’t they!”  Hershey Montessori School Moment

What did they get out of their afternoon at school today? Collaboration, responsibility, effortful work, focus, ethics, accomplishment, contribution, self-competence, math, science, language and great joy!Hershey Montessori School Moment

Alumni Panel Event – March 16, 2017

What is life like after Hershey Montessori School? On March 16, four alumni of Hershey Montessori School will be participating in a Panel Event at the Concord Campus at 6:30 PM. We will share some of their life experiences and perspectives after leaving the Montessori method of education, and answer your questions about our life choices such as college and/or careers and giving back to the community.

All are welcome! If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to RSVP@hershey-montessori.org! For more information, please visit the Facebook event here

If you’re not able to attend in person, the event will be filmed and posted online.

The four panelists participating are Leigh Emelko, Katie Vadakin, Connor DeWalt, and myself, Makella Webster.

Leigh Emelko is currently a student at Case Western Reserve University and studying Anthropology. She is also in Sigma Sigma Sigma National Sorority serving as the Goals Coordinator for Honor Council. She is also involved in Global Health Design Collaboration to help improve medical waste handling in Uganda, has studied abroad in the UK, and is planning on studying in Amsterdam in May.

Katie Vadakin is currently a student at Bently University in Boston, MA and interns at an application security company called Veracode, Inc. She is studying Finance with a double minor in Marketing and Spanish for Business, and will graduate in 2018.

I am a Marketing Coordinator for Provident Label Group, a division of Sony Music Entertainment located in Nashville, TN. My husband and I moved to Nashville about four years ago. I have worked at two nonprofit organizations and did marketing for a band from home and did a few national tours with them before being hired at Provident Label Group two years ago. I attended Ohio University for undergrad and graduate school and have my Bachelor’s Degree in Audio Production with a double minor in Music and Business, and my Master’s Degree in Media Management.

Connor DeWalt is currently a House Parent at the Huntsburg campus. He attended Hiram College and received his Bachelor’s Degree in History. While attending college, he was on the ultimate Frisbee team and was the captain of the men’s rugby team. At Hershey Montessori School, he teaches outdoor skills and is involved in other classes and activities with the students such teaching snowboarding, leading a book group, etc. He plans on pursuing his Montessori training to become a guide.
