Thomas County Central High School students interested in education recently observed a different style of teaching. Early Childhood Education student apprentices and interns toured a nearby Montessori school in Tallahassee on Thursday, April 2. The Seminole Montessori School, located in Tallahassee, is a private school that takes on a different way of teaching children. Their “hands-off” approach is very different than the typical public school teaching style. “I love to expose our students to different styles and philosophies of education,” Early Childhood Education teacher Cindy Carnes said. “I truly feel that we can teach best when we pull the best parts of various philosophies into our teaching practices.”
