    Why are you involved with Montessori Education?
    My journey with Montessori education began in the United States when my younger sisters went to a Montessori Primary School and I saw them become more curious, confident and enthusiastic about learning. In 2013, when I was offered the opportunity to work at Montessori International College as a pre-service teacher, I immediately jumped at the chance and loved the experience. I continued to volunteer at MIC in both the Adolescent and Primary Communities throughout my years at University. Upon completion of my degree, I started working as a relief teacher, then as an Assistant in Nirimbaa and later as a Guide in the After School and Vacation Care program. After this time, I became a Guide in the Adolescent Community and have loved my time here.

    These experiences with Montessori Education have been inspiring and eye-opening. Montessori International College truly provides an environment which encourages self-motivated learners who are capable of advanced problem-solving and independent thought.

    What year did you commence at Montessori International College?
    I started working at Montessori International College in 2016 as an Assistant, relief teacher and Guide in the After School and Vacation Care program. Since 2017, I have enjoyed working as a Guide in the Adolescent Community.

    How would you describe what you do?
    Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to work with various schools, teachers and students on the Sunshine Coast and I firmly believe that every student is entitled to an engaging and enriching education. The Montessori approach to learning is designed to do just that by encouraging a child’s inner desire to learn by providing them with opportunities and activities designed to develop concentration and a strong sense of responsibility for their own work. Within the Montessori framework, students also progress at their own pace according to their individual capabilities. This allows students who excel at a certain subject to follow their passions which is something I truly admire.

    My goal as an educator is to provide students with a supportive and enriching learning environment which motivates and assists students in achieving both their academic and personal aspirations.

    What’s your favourite thing about your role?
    I love being able to inspire my students to enjoy learning about new topics and to understand the importance of learning about History and English.
