'''Maria Montessori''' is the chela of [[Mother Mary]], and wearing her mantle, she has set forth the fundamentals of ascended master education for the Aquarian age. She was a messenger of the hierarchy in the field of education, and she took her instruction from Mother Mary and from [[Jesus]] and [[Kuthumi]].
Maria Montessori was born in Italy in 1870 and became Italy’s first woman medical doctor. When she was serving as a doctor in Rome, she was given an assignment to care for the kindergarten children in the slums of the city. By observing the children, she developed what has come to be known as the Montessori Method.
