After more than 5 years as a Montessori Teacher, I fell in love with the philosophy of Maria Montessori and her idea of following the child through their education process.  I have a background and degree in Outdoor Recreation and Environmental Education which I love to mix in with the Montessori teachings to provide children with opportunities to explore their environment both indoors and out in a way that is not restricted by curriculum.  Children guide their own journey of learning and I love to be a guide on their journey who provides them with the tools they need to explore, discover, understand and wonder.
