Why are you involved with Montessori Education?
Because it connects with my heart, with who I am, and what I believe education should be.
Years at Montessori International College
How would you describe what you do?
I teach and share my passion for music to inspire others. I do this by listening , sharing and responding to peoples individual needs. I sing, move , play, clap, tell stories and laugh… a lot! I do this across the board from 3 – 18 years. I also create materials, so that students can continue the work within the classroom, these can be both physical materials or songs that you cant help but sing whilst your working.
Don’t be fooled by the common misconception of “that looks like too much fun, they mustn’t be learning” … behind the scenes I plan, create and work hard to teach music theory and concepts that develop and build skills. There is method in this glorious madness.
What’s your favourite thing about your role?
Spending time with the students and seeing them discover, grow and develop as well- rounded people.
