I've been in a classroom since 2006. Since then, I have accumulated 13+ years experience as a public school Montessori upper elementary guide (ages 8-12). Over those years, I have worked hard to build an inclusive learning environment, honoring and embracing diversity.

I spent the first 13 years of my professional career as a graphic designer and desktop publisher. Craving something more fulfilling, I returned to the idea of teaching, specifically the Montessori method. The teacher who convinced me to take AMI Training suggested, "with your graphic design background, you will be able to design materials too." Over the next 13 years of classroom teaching, I discovered she was right. Today, I combine my experience from both worlds, with the goal to bring high quality and professional curriculum design to you. I have been teaching in a classroom since 2006. Since then, I have accumulated 12+ years experience as a public school Montessori upper elementary guide (ages 8-12). Over those years, I have worked hard to build an inclusive learning environment, honoring and embracing diversity. Now, I am here to help you at home. - Visit my website to learn more! grumbleservices.com -
