As a teacher in public schools, a private Montessori, and as a homeschooling mom, I've worked with grades pre-k through 3. I have traveled a lot -I'm a military spouse - and have had the opportunity to teach in several places including Richmond, VA, Newport News, VA, Minneapolis, MN, Clarksville, TN, and now in Alexandria, VA.
I have always admired the teaching of Maria Montessori and aim to follow her method whenever I can. Children will show us what they need to be taught. It is up to us to observe that need, guide them, and then get out of their way!
The highest honor I have had is to be both a mother and a military spouse.
I have a M.A.Ed. from the University of St. Catherine in St. Paul, MN and a B.A. in English from the University of Massachusetts. I also have a primary diploma from the North American Montessori Center.
I am a mother of two beautiful children and currently work in Alexandria, Virginia. I hold licensure in Virginia and Tennessee. Follow our educational adventures at www.findingmontessori.blogspot.com.
