I am a graduate of the University of Kentucky, and received my Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry in 1984.  I worked for 15 years in the analytical industry, managing laboratory testing and quality assurance before discovering the incredible world of Montessori education.  My Montessori journey first began while volunteering in my daughter’s kindergarten and elementary classrooms.  I experienced each environment as a uniquely peaceful, respectful community of children and adults, one which offered children the liberty to learn at their own pace –  learning was spontaneous and with such depth.  I then became an assistant teacher in a small Montessori school and fell completely in love with the method.  I pursued my training and have been teaching with passion ever since.  A famous physicist once said, “There are only two ways to live your life.  One is as though nothing is a miracle.  The other is as though everything is a miracle.”  I love the Montessori classroom because the children see everything as a miracle, and I feel privileged to facilitate and observe their discoveries every day
