Goretti grew up in North of Spain speaking Basque and Spanish. She moved to the UK in 2007 where she lived until early 2016. There, she worked as an Au Pair teaching Spanish while studying Retail Branding and Merchandising at London College of Fashion. Goretti has always had a strong interest in children and teaching. Before leaving London and moving to Bend, Goretti recruited and matched experienced nannies and teachers with children and their families. She learned about the Montessori philosophy while working in recruitment and was fascinated by it.
Once she relocated to Bend, Goretti volunteered at a Montessori School which confirmed her love for education. She has recently received her AMI Primary diploma from Montessori Northwest in Portland and is looking forward to settling back in Bend this summer.
Goretti is very excited to be joining the Desert Sky family. She is looking forward to contributing to the positive, creative and compassionate Montessori classroom and helping children develop their own independence while becoming members of their community.
In her spare time, Goretti enjoys floating the river, spending time at Elk Lake, snowshoeing, traveling, hiking and sharing adventures with her husband.
