“My love for the Montessori philosophy is deeply rooted in my childhood. I grew up in a small town in the Napa Valley, and I went to a Montessori school from infancy through primary. My mom worked at the school, so I feel as though it continued to be part of my life through elementary and middle school.
Years later when my family moved to Bend, I found myself drawn back into the classroom and worked at a Montessori primary school for 5 years. In my role as a primary assistant I have learned that patience, love and support will help guide any child down a happy and healthy path.
I have enjoyed the Montessori assistants training and plan to keep furthering my education so that I can eventually be a Montessori Lead Guide.
In my free time I enjoy watching movies, reading, hiking and spending time with my friends and family.
I am so glad that Bend-LaPine School District now has a Montessori elementary school and I feel privileged to be a part of this amazing experience.”
