Visiting Jakarta, Indonesia with Yitzha Sarwono Bryant

Yitzha Sarwono Bryant is a Montessori Kindergarten teacher in a small school in Jakarta. She’s been learning and practicing Montessori for 6 years and loves every aspect of it. She is also a teacher trainer for one of the training academies in Indonesia. One of the reasons why she continues to try harder is because she would like to change the mindset that a Kindergarten teacher knows less than any other teacher, since it’s the opinion of many people in Indonesia. She would love to one day see people respect kindergarten teachers as much as any other teacher.
