“When I learned about the Montessori methodology, I discovered a long-lasting way of learning that meaningfully impacts the child’s life. I have seen children learn and develop new skills and enjoy what they are doing, while also becoming the best version of themselves. Now, I can’t be more excited to be on board with Children’s House of Montessori School, to work alongside their staff, and to provide a safe and beautiful environment in which the children can learn and grow.”

Ruth Vilchez Zapata was born in Lima Peru and moved to the United States in 2015 to study and explore a new country. She has been a bilingual Montessori assistant, and has taught toddlers in a child care center, something that provided her with firsthand insight of children’s extraordinary abilities and imagination while learning.
“My family told me that when I was little, I would dance to anything I’d listen to even door bells sounds.”
In her spare time, she likes to listen to music, dance, paint, read, and go for walks in the park. Ruth also enjoys coloring mandala pages to relax her mind and would love to visit Mexico!
