I hold an Association Montessori International (AMI) diploma in Primary Level education from the International Montessori Training Institute in Atlanta, and a Master’s in Business Administration from Georgia College & State University. After working in the nonprofit sector for a few years, I was still seeking more fulfillment from the work I do in our world. Years after a friend planted the seed with me about becoming a Montessori teacher, I was able to make the switch from a cubicle to a classroom.
I have been a Montessori Guide for 7 years (1 as an Assistant, 6 as a Lead) and just wrapped up my 5th year in a classroom community that I had the honor of starting. To complement the work I do with children and their families, I also became a trained Positive Discipline Parent Educator.
When I am not at school, I like to spend my free time cooking, practicing yoga, playing golf and tennis, exploring the city, and spending time in nature.
I am passionate about Montessori education and appreciate how Montessori helps nurture and grow positive traits in children like independence, determination, curiosity, and compassion. It is wonderful getting to work with children and help them cultivate a love of learning and a love for the world around us.
