Taylor’s love for the Montessori philosophy is deeply rooted in her childhood. She grew up in a small town in the Napa Valley, and attended a Montessori school from infancy through primary. Her mom, Ms. Heather is a Montessori teacher, so the Montessori methodology continued to be part of her life through elementary and middle school. Years later Taylor moved to Bend and found herself drawn back into the classroom.
Taylor worked at a Montessori primary school for 5 years. In her role as a primary assistant she learned patience, love and support will help guide any child down a happy and healthy path. She has enjoyed the Montessori assistant role and plans to keep furthering her education so that she can eventually be a Montessori Lead Guide.
Taylor is so glad Bend-LaPine School District now has a Montessori elementary school and feels privileged to have spent the past two years working at Desert Sky as the school continues to grow alongside all our amazing staff and students.
In her free time, Taylor enjoys watching movies, reading, hiking and spending time with her friends and family.
