How did you learn about Montessori? I studied Spanish at UCD, and when I graduated, I got a part-time job teaching Spanish at a Montessori School in Granite Bay. After a few months, they decided to sponsor me for training. Who knew that I’d stick with it for 20+ years!
Where did you take your training? Kansas City, Missouri
Any other degrees, schooling, or training of note? I have a BA in English and Spanish; a California Teaching Credential; my AMI Montessori certificate, an MA in English literature, a certificate in Inclusive Education, and many teaching certificates in different styles of yoga.
