Abstract/Notes: The Alpha point of the authors' life as a Montessori educator began in 1959, when he was a graduate student studying philosophy at Fordham University in the Bronx, New York. While studying the works of the great American philosopher William James, the author came across the writings of Maria Montessori and immediately became captivated by her insights concerning the development of the virtuous child through personal experiential learning. He wrote a paper comparing her observations with those of John Dewey and afterward set out to find an opportunity to place himself in some elementary school so he might observe and encourage this philosophical development of children. His teaching career began teaching Philosophy and Latin in a school in Greenwich, Connecticut to children from very privileged families. He then describes the omega point of his career as having been called to serve the very poorest of children housed in an orphanage in Ladyville, a small village in Belize, in Central America. As a veteran Montessorian, he had been asked to help the Liberty Children's Home in Ladyville build and equip a world-class Montessori school.

Abstract/Notes: This article aims to compare Montessori’s perspective of the classroom as community of self-regulated learners to the current research on classroom management, highlighting the importance of the teacher’ attitude in promoting an inclusive and cooperative school setting. The methodology used is a semi-structured interview administered to a Montessori teacher who works in an Apulian Children’s house. The data were collected in order to capture the teacher’s opinion about the topicality of Montessori’s idea of discipline and classroom management in early childhood education.
