Hi! My name is Ms. Lisa and welcome to my classroom. I am the head teacher in classroom 5. It has been an honor to be teaching at Montessori Center of Our Lady for the past 15 years. I am fortunate to have over 20 year’s experience working with children in many areas.
I hold an Associate Degree in Arts, a Bachelor Degree in Child Development and a Montessori AMS certification.
I was born and raised in Michigan. After I graduated from college, I spent nine years in Connecticut. During my time there, I traveled a lot. One of the many exciting places I visited was the Von Trapp Family Resort which was featured in the film, The Sound of Music. 😊
Many have asked, “why teach Montessori education?” My answer can be found from a quote by Maria Montessori, she said “I can look around the classroom and observe all the children working as if I did not exist in the classroom. That they learn to be independent and this prepares them for school and their life.”
Some of my favorite things are:
- Spending time with family and friends
- Reading and all outdoor activities
- Going to sporting events and concerts
- Summer is my favorite season
- Italian food and my baking
- Comedy and romantic movies
