Discovery Montessori Class 2007In 2008, I resigned my¬† position as Director of Discovery Montessori School (www.dmsonline.org). My encore career combines what I am most passionate about, namely philanthropy, travel, photography and children and thus Dog Meets World was born. As I randomly encounter parents, students and teachers they ask for details of what Dr. Lane is up to these days (besides 5’2″). So, I sent out a group email to that community. Montessori classrooms would be a perfect cauldron for a children-helping-children fundraiser (something like Pennies for Pictures) and it would let them see real time kids in other parts of the world with geography lessons as a bonus!
