Years at NESM: 17 + 5 Preparing to open the school
When not focused on NESM, I enjoy spending time with my family; my parents, my husband, two children, three sisters and 9 Nieces & nephews. I also enjoy skiing, hiking, ATV riding and reading/audio books. I have recently become very interested in audio books and have logged hundreds of hours of books, such as educational, parenting, biographies, historical, romance and mystery. I developed a plan to open a Montessori school while observing children in a classroom environment in 1995 in Simsbury, CT.
I had finally found it!!! My lifelong passion! I wish all children the right to a Montessori experience as I believe these are the most crucial years in all of one's life. Especially those from Birth to Six, the personality is nearly completely formed by this time. The personality is a part of a human that rarely changes throughout all of life.
Montessori offers more than an education, it illicits a lifelong passion for learning! Montessori teachers are the creme-de-le-creme. They are trained to truly understand child development and to honor the child in all his/her experiences.
Scholarship program available to Primary (3 - 6) and Elementary (6 - 12) aged children. All information is provided to FAST and kept confidential to Independent School Management FAST advisors. Opens Jan. 1st for the following Fall school year. Closes April 30th.
"The child is truly a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the educator."
Dr. Maria Montessori
