Mr. Silva has lived with Montessori ever since he came to the United States. His two sons were Montessori trained.

The Silvas are fortunate and blessed to have our own second generation students, "grandchildren", in our school. Mr. Silva assists in the classroom and at lunch time when needed. The children enjoy his presence very much and he is loved by all!
