Hello everyone, I am so thrilled to be working with your children and to have so many wonderful families join our school. 

My family moved to Iowa from Canada in 2013. My husband Christian and I have been married for over 20 years and together we have four children and a small toy poodle. 

I received my AMS 3-6 years diploma through the training center in Windsor, Canada where I also worked.

We later moved to Japan for my husband's job. There, I was able to use my Montessori education in different capacities-I organized a mom and baby Montessori group, I taught private English lessons using Montessori methods, and worked in a Japanese preschool teaching English with a Montessori philosophy. When we moved to Italy, I was able to again make use of my Montessori skills by leading a mom and toddler group. 

I am excited about this new adventure and pleased to offer each student and family a pure Montessori environment with a wealth of International flare and years of experience.

I am looking forward to this fall season and years to come. For more information about my story, visit 'Meet the Founder'
