Hi! My name is Ms. Jody and I am blessed to be able to teach 3 to 6 year olds every day at Montessori Center of Our Lady. I have taught at Montessori Center of Our Lady for 21 years. I love teaching Montessori because it’s a hands-on way for a child to learn at his or her own pace and level while getting a great education. Children learn that their classmates are more than just classmates, they are friends and people who should be cared about in the world we live in. Before I was a Montessori certified teacher, I held positions as a dental assistant, nanny, summer day camp counselor, day camp director and a head teacher at KinderCare.
I grew up with a very close family here in Michigan. Growing up, I spent most weekends and summers going to East Tawas, Michigan with my family. My parents, my favorite Aunt Dianne and middle sister Cathy still live there. Carol, my youngest sister, lives in Bay City, Michigan with her fiancé, Blake and their two sons, Logan, who is 8-months old, and Elijah, who is 14-years old. I absolutely love being an aunt to Logan and Elijah.
One fun fact that most people don’t know about me is that I’ve been skydiving in one of my favorite states, Tennessee. Some of my favorite things to do are spend time with my family and friends and work out in classes such as, Zumba, Weight Training, Kickboxing and WERQ.
