After figuring out my path in college, I felt drawn to children. I continued my education at Red Rocks Community College and received my Associate’s degree. I also have my group leader qualification and my director center certification. As I discovered, the Montessori method was the only way I could see myself helping children develop into their own individual being, I was hired as Toddler assistant in 2004 at MAC. In 2006, I received my Montessori certification and became a lead in a Toddler room for a few years and have been the Directeress in Nido 3 since 2009.
In 2009, I decided I needed to go in a different direction and received my Medical Assistant certification and worked in a doctor’s office for about a year, but I soon found myself back at MAC as a Nido Directress where I continue to love the children, families and staff of MAC.
Personal Info – hobbies, interests, inspirations
I enjoy the outdoors, movies and painting. I find myself continually learning. I enjoy extreme sports even though initially I seem to be afraid. I’ve tried sky diving, spelunking, zip lining and parasailing. Next I would love to try hang-gliding and rock climbing. Friends and family have always been important to me and I cherish the time I am able to spend with them.
Montessori Moment – favorite quotes from students, anecdotes
“He learns everything without knowing he is learning it, and in doing so he passes little by little from the unconscious to conscious treading always in the path of joy and love.”
