Ms. Amanda Wagner in the Lead Primary Guide in the Yellowstone classroom at Cabrillo Montessori School of Silicon Valley.
She has always enjoyed working with children and their families. Her very first job was with the Children’s Discovery Museum of Downtown San Jose. For over four years, she worked various positions within the museum that allowed her to facilitate learning through fun and exploration.
Since beginning her career in 2001, she worked as a Behavior Management Tutor, facilitating the growth and development of children on the spectrum.
In addition, she advocated for children by teaching conflict resolution skills and child development as part of an intervention program.
In 2008, she received my A.A. degree in General Studies then graduated from San Jose State University in 2012 with her bachelor’s degree in Psychology.
While she spent countless hours with her nose in a book, she also enjoyed learning how to surf, salsa dance, and whip up a healthy gluten-free meal!
In 2014, she began one of the most valuable learning experiences of her life; she had her son and started her own little family. He has now begun his own adventure as an Montessori child at the Montessori School of Silicon Valley!
