Montessori Madmen

Advocating Montessori

We're an impatient, ragtag group of dads and advocates from around the world, united by a common zeal to bring the Montessori method to millions more. Our mission is simple: to advocate for Montessori education so that one day it's not called Montessori school; it's just called school.

Superwoman was already here.

Have you heard the news? Superwoman was already here. 

The Madmen are pleased to announce a new Montessori video, by one of our very members. Daniel C. Petter-Lipstein is the father of three children that thrive at a Jewish Montessori school in New Jersey. He graduated from Harvard College and Columbia Law School and after a decade still finds satisfaction as a lawyer. But sometimes he wishes he could just take a month off and audit his daughter’s 4-6th grade Montessori upper elementary class where they are learning about stellar nucleosynthesis and creating their own marble games. Daniel created, wrote and narrated his own animation based on his article, “Superwoman Was Already Here”.
