CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

The elementary school at Incarnate Word Academy celebrated the birthday of Maria Montessori on Friday. Montessori was an Italian physician and educator who lived from 1870-1952.

Students were able to parade around the school while singing and blowing bubbles.

"It's been really fun, well, because she created Montessori and it's been really fun researching about her," third-grader Giselle Hanson said.

The school, which teaches in the style called Montessori, is actually the longest running school of its kind in the city.
