Originally from Cincinnati, Delia is a new transplant to Bend. Cincinnati is a unique place that has public elementary Montessori schools as well as one public Montessori high school. Delia was fortunate that her Montessori teacher mother understood that a traditional Jr. High and High school experience was not Delia’s path. Montessori was a special for Delia in elementary; high school solidified her passion for the Montessori method. Please feel free to ask her any question you may have about it!
After high school, Delia took time off from school to explore a young budding 3-6 program in Northern Kentucky. There, she started a small aftercare program for the two classroom school. During the four years that she worked for the school, Delia was able to work in the classroom as an assistant during the day and then run the aftercare program at the end of the day. She also started at Northern Kentucky University to complete her bachelors in Early Childhood Education. By the end of her time there the school had grown to a complete 9-12 program with five 3-6 programs. Northern Kentucky Montessori Academy will always hold a very special place in her heart.
Delia is so excited for her adventures in her new home in Oregon and hoping to complete her degree here. She is excited to be working with the Desert Sky Montessori school family and is excited for this new year.
