Ilana Dover: Montessori Leader, Teacher and Friend

As some of you may know, Ilana Dover, one of Montessori’s best, came to the end of her battle with cancer on March 7. Ilana dedicated herself to Montessori education for 35 years. The past 7 years, she was Owner, Director and Teacher at San Jose Montessori School in San Jose. She was also the author and creator of the “Real Heroes” series of children’s books.
