The Power Of Peace | The Montessori Story by Alex Mitnick
I had the honor and pleasure of creating a musical for children about the life and work of Dr. Maria Montessori. Little did I know how transformational the experience would be for me. She was a remarkable woman who had an enormous impact on the way children are taught all around the world. I'm so proud of these kids and the whole team that brought my vision of 'The Montessori Story' to life. Thank you all! Here's the finale. The Power Of Peace. During WWII, Dr. Montessori spent nearly seven years living in exile in India where she befriended Mahatma Gandhi who believed her methods were the best way to teach the millions of India's poor, illiterate children. Together they would spread their message of peace through education throughout the world.
