It is not out of the ordinary for Montessori students to self direct their learning and research. So, when upper elementary students, Sushil and Matthew, both age 11, decided to conduct a research on the topic of world wars, Sushil invited Sam Morris, a World War II veteran, to speak to his class about his involvement in that war. Morris also shared many stories about his experiences being a young soldier.

The class learned first-hand from Morris, that he was an assistant commander in the Army, and he was in the 36 Infantry Division. After the war he was awarded a Purple Heart, along with several other medals for displaying heroism during combat.
