This wonderful quote by Annie Sullivan, Helen Keller’s teacher, is proof she was another kindred spirit of Dr. Maria Montessori. 

“Dr. Montessori learned, as I learned, and as every teacher must learn, that only through freedom can individuals develop self-control, self-dependence, will power and initiative. There is no education except self-education. There is no effective discipline except self-discipline. All that parents and teachers can do for the child is to surround him with right conditions. He will do the rest; and the things he will do for himself are the only things that really count in his education."
