    Why are you involved with Montessori Education?
    My journey with Montessori education began in the United States when my sisters went to a Montessori Primary School. When I was offered the opportunity in 2013 to work at Montessori International College in Adolescence as one of my practical placements as a pre-service teacher, I immediately jumped at the chance.

    Since 2013, I volunteered at the College in both Adolescence and Primary throughout my years at University. Upon completion of my degree, I started working as a relief teacher, and then an assistant in Nirimbaa and Montessori Beyond guide. This experience was extremely eye-opening and inspiring. The Montessori International College truly is an environment which encourages self-motivated learners who are capable of advanced problem-solving and independent thought.

    Years at Montessori International College
    1 year as an assistant, relief teacher and Montessori Beyond guide and this is my first year as a guide in Adolescence.

    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.
