Dr. Silvia C. Dubovoy

MISD is honored to have Dr. Silvia C. Dubovoy as its Director of Training. Dr. Dubovoy is a brilliant, energetic Montessorian who has been involved with Montessori education in many capacities since 1965. She earned her Ph.D. in psychology from the University of Barcelona, and spent several years studying and collaborating with Dr. Carl R. Rogers, a leading humanistic psychologist. Dr. Dubovoy was interviewed on the subject of how children develop their personalities:

Though she no longer practices psychology, Dr. Dubovoy continues to be an active intellectual, and in particular does all she can to support Montessori’s theory as it relates to the field of neuroscience. She is a member of several organizations pursuing theoretical work, such as the AMI Research Committee Group and the Neurosciences Institute in La Jolla, CA, and regularly attends neuroscience symposiums and conferences both in the United States and abroad. As you can imagine, her lectures are sprinkled with fascinating discoveries in neuroscience that support Dr. Montessori’s theories.

In short, Dr. Dubovoy is one of the most passionate educators you will ever have the privilege of meeting. When she speaks, you will hold your breath for fear of missing a word!
