Montessori Teacher (Kinder)

My Bio

I am delighted to return to San Tan as a Lead Kinder Montessori teacher. I was born and raised in Montana and attended Montessori schools growing up. I earned my B.A. from The University of Texas at Dallas in Art and Performance, learning about arts and cultures from all over the world and training as a classical vocalist, violinist, and visual artist. I studied abroad in Germany and then spent several years traveling and teaching throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Asia, and England.

Exploring the world was an unforgettable adventure and I have much to share from my travels with my students. In addition to being a certified Montessori Primary teacher, I am also an internationally accredited yoga teacher-trainer and instructor and enjoy teaching singing and violin to young students. I love plants and animals, practicing yoga, and exploring beautiful Arizona with my husband Theodor and our children.
