Despite completing my university education as a librarian, I realized that my real career path was different. My first experience with the Montessori Method of education was when I came from Turkey to Vilnius, Lithuania as a volunteer with the EVS volunteering project. This sparked my interest in the Montessori method and working with children. After a year of observation, I decided to join the VMS community as a permanent member of staff. I believe this experience will help me to explore the Montessori philosophy more deeply, and gain a better understanding of the child’s natural learning processes.
