I have been in education for the past thirty years, from preschool through the college level, including Montessori preschool and Upper elementary classrooms. I believe strongly in the power of Montessori education and the belief that all children have the innate desire to learn.
My background is in Special Education and Early Childhood Education. I hold a B.S. in Horticulture and a Minor in Special Education. I have a Master’s Degree in Elementary Ed, and an AMS 3-6 Certification. I have also completed N.C. Administration III Certification and am currently enrolled in Montessori Leadership training. I am an independent facilitator for “Parenting the Love & Logic Way.” I also am a facilitator for training teachers to use in Love & Logic in their classrooms.
I live in Black Mountain with my husband, three Labradors and one cat. I have two grown children and two grandchildren. My husband and I enjoy the mountains of North Carolina and the many outdoor activities available.
