yeah, obviously behavioural issues would be the tippity top.. I hated having to talk to parents about their child's behaviour especially if they were they type of parent that thought their child could do no wrong. But I found most parents at least acted like they cared about what I had to say lol I don't teach anymore, not enough money in it for me as a single parent---but I miss it a lot!!

I was a Montessori teacher for about three years. Seems like a short time for something I had to get a degree for at a special school. The hardest thing for me was dealing with LO's all day and then coming home to my own. My kids kind of got the short end of the Mommy stick because after a particularly rough day I would be short on patients. Behavioral issues were dealt with in a wonderful way at our school. We also had a barn and horses etc. If a child was out of sorts then we would take a trip to the barn. Animals have such a calming affect on humans at times. I think the hardest part was just the fact that your average 3-5 yr old are pretty high maintenance. They require a lot of attention. Montessori schools are calm schools for the most part, it is part of the curriculum. I miss it at times but I am busy with my own 5.
