Nan relocated to Bend from Seattle in 2017. She comes with 15+ years of experience working with children of all ages. Her background includes teaching in an after-school program at an international elementary school in Seattle. Her focus is on creating an interesting and varied curriculum in art, science, cooking and games that stimulate a child’s curiosity and love of learning.
Nan has three grown sons; one lives in Seattle, one here in Bend and the third son lives in L.A. Her family also includes a pup named Hannah and a kitty named Lilly. In her free time Nan likes to explore beautiful Central Oregon.
Nan is now in her second year as the lead after-school guide at Desert Sky. She would like everyone to know that she feels very fortunate and honored to be a part of the Desert Sky Montessori Family.
