Amanda Herman

I was born and raised in Michigan but have had a bit of a nomadic life in that I’ve also lived in Illinois, New York, North Carolina, and California before moving to Denver last year.  I studied Art History and English and received my BA from Warren Wilson College in Asheville, North Carolina.  I also attended graduate school for Library Science at SUNY Albany in New York.

I’ve worked in both college administration and real estate, but joining MAC in 2013 was my first experience with Montessori education.  I wanted to have a purpose again, and I believe engaging with the children in this environment is one of the best purposes I can imagine.

At home I am an avid reader and have found that the many branches of the Denver Public Library are a great way for me to indulge in the books.  I love to create and have dabbled in multiple crafts over the years, but I’ve been enjoying quilting for the past five.  I am the proud aunt of two Primary-age nephews and two Toddler-age nieces.
