We are excited to announce that Megan Nordoff, of Montessori of Mount Pleasant, has been selected as a finalist for GOOD Magazine’s Innovative Teacher Award.  You already know Ms. Megan’s commitment advocating for innovation during the first stage of development and her support in ensuring that children reach their fullest potential across all planes of development.  We now have an opportunity to share our work on a larger platform- and we are asking for your help.

We’ll be making announcement regarding voting and updates on Megan’s status via this social media outlet.  We will also send out general information via email and Google Group.
Why VOTE (each day, and every day) –
* An opportunity to feature South Carolina as an INNOVATOR in the field of education
* Highlight progressive models of education including MONTESSORI, RIE (www.rie.org), ORTON GILLINGHAM, Richard Louv’s Nature Education, Slow Food, Agriculture and Gardening to early literacy, Reggio inspired environments and more!
* Bring a national spotlight on the work being done at the EARLY CHILDHOOD level (birth – six years) and the impact a quality early childhood experience has on school readiness and innovation at Kindergarten
* Show the nation that there’s more to the Charleston community then a happening tourist destination- it’s a wonderful place to live and raise your children!

What will we do if we win the 10K grant?
We have an idea concept in place for a MOBILE FARM CLASSROOM modeled after the Montessori (Grammar) Farm built to a Tiny House scale.  The 10K will get this project off the ground.  It is our intent to build “sister-school” relationships outside the walls of our facility and extend the mobile farm classroom to other South Carolinian schools.  If you are interested in participating as a sponsor with the design of this GOODInnovation Idea, we are very happy to welcome your efforts and contributions.
“Whatever you are, be a good one.”
