How did you learn about Montessori?: I learned about Montessori when I began working as an assistant in the Toddler Community at Montessori Country Day.

Where did you take your training?: I did my training at The Montessori Institute in Denver.

What do you love about Montessori?: I love that the Montessori method allows children to learn and develop naturally into independent, peaceful citizens of the world.

3 things you can’t live without: The three things I can’t live without are my cats, all of my books (I’m counting them as 1 thing!), and chocolate!

Most favorite trip you’ve taken: My favorite trip would be any time I’ve gone to the beach- I love being near the ocean!

One rule you live by: One rule I live by is to always find something positive in my day to smile about.

Favorite quote: One of my favorite quotes is: “Children are human beings to whom respect is due, superior to us by reason of their innocence and of the greater possibilities of their future.” – Maria Montessori
