Education and experience
My elementary childhood took place in Montessori schools. After attending traditional secondary schools, I better understood how powerful the Montessori materials had been in my education.
My undergraduate degrees and Montessori training are from Xavier University, (2005), and my Masters of Education is from St. Catherine University, (2012). At the same time, I earned my Early Childhood AMS certificate.
After graduating in 2005, I worked as a Primary Lead teacher in a small Caribbean Montessori school, (St. Maarten Montessori). In 2008 I moved to Prague and worked as a Primary Lead Teacher until 2011. From 2011 to 2013 I worked as a lead teacher at a public charter Montessori school in Miami, Florida. Since September 2013 I have been working as a Montessori program coordinator and Xavier University consultant for Central China Normal University's kindergarten in Wuhan, China.
I am currently a lead teacher at Coral Reef Montessori charter school in Miami, FL. I hold an Ohio and Florida State Teaching Certificate for Pre K - 3rd with an ESOL endorsement. Having lived and worked in various parts of the globe, (USA, St. Maarten, Czech Republic, and China), I feel connected to Montessori in a variety of settings.
