Vale Larry Schaefer

Monday 10th October 2022

The AMI community is saddened by the passing of Larry Schaefer on September 29, 2022, at 91 years old. Larry was an educator, historian, humanist, visionary and, in terms of his granddaughter Linnea, "the happiest person in the world."

Larry became an influential global leader in Montessori education and devoted his professional life, which extended to the day he passed, to Montessori education and, in particular, the unique needs and potential of the adolescent. His legacy in Montessori education will endure and lives on in the hearts and minds of the educators, and students he taught, mentored, and inspired.
