“I have always had a talent and love for working with children, and have been babysitting/nannying since the age of 11. After receiving such an amazing education at Montessori myself, it only seems natural I combine my talent with my experience, and I’m so happy to have the opportunity to be a part of the Montessori experience for the next generation with Children’s House Montessori!”
