            <h2>Who she was?</h2>
            <p>Dr. Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian physician and educator best known for the philosophy of education that bears her name, Montessori method.This is a method of education for young children that stresses the development of a child's
                own initiative and natural abilities, especially through practical play.This method allowed children to develop at their own pace and provided educators with a new understanding of child development.</p>
                <li>1870 -Born in Chiaravalle, Italy</li>
                <li>1896 -Graduated from the University of Rome in 1896 as a doctor of medicine</li>
                <li>1896-1901 -worked and researched so-called "phrenasthenic" children -in modern terms, children experiencing some form of cognitive delay, illness, or disability.</li>
                <li>1900 -Became co-director for Orthophrenic School, a "medico-pedagogical institute" for training teachers in educating mentally disabled children with an attached laboratory classroom. During her two years at the school, Montessori developed
                    methods and materials which she later adapted to use with mainstream children.</li>
                <li>1901-1906 -Studied further for Philosophy, anthropology and educational philosophy</li>

                    movement and activity within the limits set by the environment. She began to see independence as the aim of education, and the role of the teacher as an observer and director of children's innate psychological development.</li>
                <li>1909 -Montessori's work began to attract the attention of international observers and visitors.</li>
