Who is Mae Carden?
By Mrs. Livingood

Carden of Tucson is proud to use the Carden Method in all of our classes. The Carden Method was developed by Mae Carden over her lifetime and her dedication to the learning of children is evident in every lesson she created. Miss Carden was born in 1894 in the territory of Hawaii. She attended Vassar College and Columbia Teachers College before starting her first school in 1934. The first school was in New York City on the upper East Side of the city. The school closed in 1949 and Miss Carden focused her attention on other schools. In 1962 Miss Carden created the Carden Foundation so that the method could be established in specific Carden schools. Miss Carden is responsible for over 400 textbooks and educational writings. There are 80 Carden schools nationwide and two in the Tucson area.

As a teacher, I am so thankful for the Carden Method. It is a clear and thoughtful approach that encourages children to own their learning and experience joy while doing it. I continue to see students gain confidence as they move through the years at Carden of Tucson, and I am hopeful for each Carden graduate as they move on to High School.
