Magnolia Montessori has some news! As our school evolves its purpose, we are sad to announce that one of our teacher-leaders, Clare Gervasi, will be stepping down at the end of this school year as co-head of school. They will be relocating to Chicago with their family for new and exciting adventures there. We wish them the best as they follow their purpose!
This means that Magnolia is shifting and has a growth opportunity. Whitney will be head of school by herself next year, surrounded by a team of three talented educators and Magnolia families who will support her and the school. Magnolia is in a process of discernment about who will fill the role of co-head and how to solidify that Magnolia thrives going forward. We are actively looking for an co-head of school who is Montessori trained and who wants to step into this leadership role long-term. We are also looking for broader and deeper community support on the financial level to ensure Wildflower's sustainability and growth in Louisville. If we can find this leadership and support, we look forward to growing more beautiful, neighborhood Montessori schools that Louisville needs and deserves.
Thank you for all the love and enthusiasm you have shown for our school thus far. We look forward to deepening our ties to community through new commitments and opportunities in the year to come. Check out our Teacher and Board Bios on our updated website!
