Special women !

Dear verblingers, as usual on the 8th of March, we celebrate women's day.
But how do we want to celebrate this day?
Personally, I would like to remember the women who worked to improve our countries and the society in which we live.
In this article I would like to mention an italian woman I really admire and who is an example for me as a teacher : Maria Montessori.
Maria Montessori was a teacher and a pedagogist who developed the well-known Montessori method. Maria got a degree in medicine.She later studied psychology and anthropology, specializing in child development. She started to work with kids with different types of disabilities and afterwards she extended her educational method to all children.Her method of education is based on self-directed activity, hands-on learning and collaborative play.Creativity and freedom are very important in the learning process.
Maria was very active to motivate women to fight for their rights and earn the distinction as an equal gender.She also fought against child labour.
I really admire her because she dedicated her life to education in order to improve the society and to give a chance to every single child, starting from the children with disabilities who were often abandoned in hospitals losing the possibility to live a decent life. And you ? Which “special” woman would you mention ?
I'm looking forward to reading your comments and stories!

Ciao! My name is Ilaria, I'm from Milan and I'm an experienced and certified italian teacher for foreigners. I've been teaching italian for the last 8 years, working for different language schools and cultural associations in Milan and abroad. I've been working with students of all levels, ages and background including immigrants, high school students, kids, adults ,seniors and college students. I have already been teaching online for 4 years. I’m a language learner. I speak english, portuguese and spanish. I lived in Ireland, in Portugal and in the Netherlands. I love intercultural relations and during my classes I really enjoy covering topics related to culture, geography, art, music, gastronomy and much more! My classes are conversation driven. I speak italian from the first lesson and you will realize that this is possible, even for a beginner! Together with speaking, I always include some reading, listening, vocabulary, writing and a focus on grammar rules. During my classes I like to use different materials like songs, images, games, role-plays, poems and videos. I like to prepare tailor-made lessons according to my students needs and interests. I’m also an experienced travel agent and author of articles related to tourism and culture. I can also help professionals who need Businness Italian classes or Italian classes for the tourism industry. If you want to learn or improve your Italian, book a lesson with me and I’ll see you soon! A presto!
