Motivated Montessori teacher was motivated learner to begin with

Children are very good at learning, says Lupita Alvarez. The executive director of the Juneau Montessori School said she watches children learn. She laughed at the idea that people need standardized tests to prove it. Children at her school in Douglas call her Pita. For many, her full first name can be a mouthful, she said.

They learned about air and its components, which are measured in microns.
