Lead Montessori Teacher (Toddler)

My Bio

I am excited to join San Tan as the toddler teacher this year. I am looking forward to getting to know the students and their families here at San Tan Montessori.

I am passionate about teaching and the development of the whole child.  I believe children learn best when they feel safe, comfortable, and happy. My mission is to guide and foster the child’s love for learning and respect of all things.

After six years of working as a Montessori teacher’s assistant in the classroom, I completed my Montessori early childhood training, and have been a Montessori Lead teacher for the past six years. I received my Credential at the Montessori Education Institute of the Pacific Northwest in Bothell, Washington in July of 2017. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Simpson College in Iowa.

I moved to Arizona in July of 2018 from Seattle, Washington. I currently live in Gilbert, with my husband Darren, and my three children Reece, Owen, and Presley. In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling, hiking, camping, and playing volleyball.
