I grew up in Carbondale, Colorado and attended Montessori schools from 18 months to 11 years old. Not only was I surrounded by the Montessori method every day at school, my mom was a Montessori teacher, and brought the Montessori theory home. After moving to traditional school for middle and high school, I realized just how important Montessori was to me. I believe guiding children to be autonomous, creative, thoughtful and kind human beings is critical in the world we live in.
I attended Webster University in St. Louis for Elementary education for a year, but decided to take a break from school to explore my passions. I plan working towards my bachelors and Montessori certification in the near future.
