About Me


While taking time off from full-time work to be with our daughter, I discovered Montessori education. I have since taken courses to learn about the Montessori method for Adolescents as well as for primary aged children. Thus far, it has been a fascinating journey to understand a child's growth and development.  Having spent a year in the combined Lower and Upper Elementary environment, I come with an understanding of a child's ladder of development from early childhood through adolescence. I am excited to be a part of your child's social, emotional, and academic growth this year!

It is not about the destination, but the journey! I've been all over the globe and welcome the opportunity to share with anyone interested.
