Cristina Perotti of Rome, Italy sends us a picture drawn by a little girl in a traditional primary classroom which has minimal learning materials, along with some behavioral issues. There is no tower in the classroom, yet this little girl spontaneously drew one to show Cristina. This was a special moment for Cristina as she pondered the genius of Maria Montessori. Cristina said:
"Children teach us so much. They tell you what they need, the material they want in order to learn...I was amazed."
