Montessori Practitioner

 I have been in education for 14 years and am a parent of two children. The most valuable lessons I’ve learned about education and parenting  stem from the Montessori philosophy. Montessori  is  based on following the child’s interests in order to maximize their learning potential. 


Let’s Work Together

 I provide consulting services to parents, teachers & schools interested in learning about Montessori.

My Mission

My mission is to help cultivate a mindset in education that is child-centered and relies on practices that are grounded in research and follow the child’s developmental timeline. This is what the Montessori philosophy can offer.  I’m here to bridge that connection.

My Story

notebook, write, notes

Education is my passion in life.  It has been my life’s work to learn as much as I can in order to be an effective parent, teacher and a Montessori Practitioner.

Parent

When I became a parent, I wanted peacefully engaging experiences for my children.  I read every book I could find and learned that with Montessori, this sense of simplicity was not only possible, but worthwhile and rewarding. 

I have two amazing children that have taught me all I know about parenting.  The most important lesson has been to strive for patience above all things and to seize every convenient and inconvenient opportunity for fostering independence.

Teacher

 As a teacher, I knew I needed to learn more than my certification and teacher training provided, so I continued my studies beyond the requirements, obtaining two Master’s in Bilingual Education & English as a Second Language.

In my 14 years in education, I’ve supported teachers in many classrooms  as an instructional coach for a large school district, and traveled across the country to work in different schools as a bilingual reading consultant.

Montessori Practitioner

When I became a Montessori Practitioner, I found that the Montessori approach answers many of the questions parents, teachers & school administrators have about developing language & literacy skills among young children.

I am an internationally certified Montessori teacher.  I have worked in various Montessori classrooms as an intern, Spanish language teacher and a lead Montessori guide for transitioning toddlers and primary children (ages 3-6).
