BAN­NOCK­BURN SCHOOL

The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators - MEG KAHNERT HEAD OF SCHOOL

Meg Kahnert at­tended Montes­sori school as a child, and it’s al­ways been a part of her. You could even say that it mo­ti­vated her to be­come an ed­u­ca­tor. “It is my be­lief that chil­dren should love com­ing to school and that their nat­u­ral cu­rios­ity and love of learn­ing can be life-long char­ac­ter­is­tics,” Kahnert says. Af­ter teach­ing for more than 15 years, she has now been in ad­min­is­tra­tion for over 10 years. “I en­joy greet­ing all the stu­dents each morn­ing, and it is a joy to watch their ea­ger­ness as they en­ter their class­rooms,” she says. “I am very proud to be the Head of School at Ban­nock­burn, and it is a priv­i­lege to work with such an ex­cep­tional group of ed­u­ca­tors.” Sev­eral years ago, an alum­nus had re­turned to speak with the grad­u­at­ing class and at­trib­uted her suc­cess as a stu­dent to her years in Montes­sori. She at­trib­uted her be­lief that any­thing was pos­si­ble and her de­sire to make a dif­fer­ence in the world to her teacher. Meg Kahnert was that teacher. “Each day I come to school be­liev­ing that my ac­tions and in­ter­ac­tions con­trib­ute to the won­der­ful com­mu­nity at Ban­nock­burn. It is the role of the ed­u­ca­tor to truly know each stu­dent at any given time and work tire­lessly to en­sure they are reach­ing their full po­ten­tial both as stu­dents and in­di­vid­u­als.”
