"Establishing lasting peace is the work of education."
- Maria Montessori

This past Monday the Level Up Village Blog featured Principal of East Cooper Montessori Charter School in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, Jody Swanigan.  With the goal of incorporating STEM into her school, Jody soon realized that the global STEAM courses offered by Level Up Village (LUV) were much more.  She saw the connection between LUV’s “Take a Class, Give a Class” model and Montessori education.

“The global aspect is very Montessori and seemed to really fit what we were trying to accomplish. Our kids do ‘Peace Projects’ and need to do something with their hands. Connecting them with kids in other countries really bridges the global aspect and reinforces the idea that I can make an impact outside my community,” said Jody.

"Maria Montessori said, ‘Establishing lasting peace is the work of education.’That's what Level Up Village does by forming that connection of peace education across very different communities,” added Jody.
