MACTE Primary Certification from Montessori Academy of Spring Valley, Washington
15 years Montessori classroom experience
9 years Lead Primary Montessori Teacher
I received my Early Education Montessori Certificate from the University of Puget Sound. In 2015, I completed my formation course for Catechesis serving children 3-6 years of age through The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Association of Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia. My mission as an educator is to motivate, inspire, encourage, and support my students by providing a prepared, loving environment and a place for religious life. I believe there is a spiritual awareness in every child. My passion is preparing a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation, and prayer.
I love spending time at home with my family. One of my favorite movies is The Bishop’s Wife. I remember watching this with my mother, who encouraged me to listen to God’s Word as a young child.
