I began my journey with education as a parent searching for early childhood education option. I received my ECE degree from Northern Virginia Community College. I am proud to say that I received my AMI training in Palo Alto, California under the direction of Dr. Lena Wikramaratne. "Miss Lena," as she was known, trained and worked with Dr. Montesori and Mario in India. I retired in May, 2017, after almost 40 years as a Primary guide. I have always enjoyed making materials for my and my friends classrooms and now I'm pleased to have the time to create some new materials for you! - Mary
