The Montessori Inclusive School (TMIS) is a small, family-owned school established in the heart of Cedar Park, Texas. TMIS is a culmination of Isabelle Abad Turner’s dream of opening a school to serve children of all backgrounds. Mrs. Turner is a Montessori guide by profession and a mother by heart who strongly believes in this philosophy and hopes that her differently-abled daughter will have the same opportunity to obtain a Montessori education like her eldest son. She is raising her children in a Montessori way of accepting who they are and supporting their own timeline of growth. She attributes Montessori to her daughter’s independence (more like a spunk!), positive self-image, and great self-advocacy skills despite her disability. Additionally, Mrs. Turner’s teaching tenure in an international Montessori school made a powerful impact on her. She had a full class with families from different parts of the world. School events consisted of colorful costumes, authentic cuisines, and festive celebrations. The school community was always very generous in sharing a part of their lives! It paved the way for her to appreciate the uniqueness and gifts of each culture. She realized that people’s differences can form a beautiful montage that enriches each other’s lives.
"The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child's own natural desire to learn."
Mrs. Turner witnessed first-hand through her years of teaching experience the beauty, innocence, and kindness of children in a Montessori class and how the children know no boundaries in terms of cultivating their own peaceful community. With respect as the guiding light, The Montessori Inclusive School will be a beacon for children and families with different backgrounds and show our community and the world that character and good values matter. Kindness prevails. Hope will always be there for our children. The Montessori Inclusive School in its little ways will strive to positively contribute for our future generations.
