I enjoy teaching at Chesterton Montessori School. Building relationships with students as they explore their Universe and realize what they’re capable of as they work and serve with others is a joy. Students help me to remain curious and it’s a privilege to be part of their journey as they grow and develop over three years in Upper Elementary.
If I could meet one person from history, it would be Maria Montessori for her method of teaching is a gift to the world.
I enjoy staying active outside and traveling.
I love my family. I have four children and a patient husband. Three of our children have graduated from Chesterton Montessori and one is currently a six-year student. This is my fourteenth year with the school.
