    Qualifications

    Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science & Public Policy – California State University; Master of Education – Loyola University; Association of Montessori Internationale diploma in elementary education ages 6 to 12.

    Why are you involved with Montessori Education?

    I first started working with children and adolescents in outdoor education settings and discovered the power of experiential settings. After owning and operating numerous youth adventure programs, I was approached by the local Montessori school to help in opening a Montessori elementary program.  The experiential nature of a Montessori education resonated deeply within me and I soon pursued Montessori training so that I might help guide students in these beautiful classroom environments.

    What year did you commence at Montessori International College?

    I’m a MIC tadpole: 2018

    How would you describe what you do?

    I guide children to actively engage in their unique environment, discover the joy of learning and become well-rounded, capable individuals who are connected to themselves and others.  I am a facilitator of the joy and wonder of learning.

    What’s your favourite thing about your role?

    I’m told that it is a rarity for one to get up on Monday mornings and be excited to go to work and yet I get to experience this thrill weekly.  As a life-long learner, I am an active participant in the student’s journey.  Each day is adventurous, enlightening, and fully engaging.
