I have known I wanted to work with children since I was a child myself. It was when I found the Montessori philosophy that I felt there is nothing in this life that I would rather do. Being able to follow the child and keep their passion for discovery alive is something so valuable. As a teacher I pursue a goal to provide the highest quality of education for both students and their families, while building experiences to become a more successful teacher. I feel so fortunate to work with children everyday and am proud to be part of the Dynamite Montessori staff.
