Daniel C. Petter-Lipstein is the father of three children that thrive at a Jewish Montessori school in New Jersey. He graduated from Harvard College and Columbia Law School and after a decade still finds satisfaction as a lawyer. But sometimes he wishes he could just take a month off and audit his daughter’s 4-6th grade Montessori upper elementary class where they are learning about stellar nucleosynthesis and creating their own marble games.
Daniel created, wrote and narrated his own animation based on his article, “Superwoman Was Already Here”. He also inspired Trevor Eissler to create the acclaimed “Montessori Madness” animation which has been translated into Russian and French versions and is also scheduled to be translated into Spanish and Italian.
