Crescent Montessori School of Silicon Valley

I began my love for Montessori in college after taking a Montessori education class.

After graduating from San Jose State with a BA in Child and Adolescent Development in 2012 I went on to earn a Montessori Credential in Primary Education from the Center for Guided Montessori Studies.

My Montessori career began working as the lead guide in the Toddler Community at Calaveras Montessori.

About two years later, I moved into the Primary Community becoming the lead guide at Crescent Montessori.

As a director, I like to draw from my experience in the classroom at both age levels and bring that knowledge & experience to an administrative level.

What draws me most to Montessori education is the philosophy of the child as a whole.

This really spoke to me and connected with me because education should be about more than just academics but the child as an independent individual.

Being able to guide and support each child as they grow and discover in their own way gives me the greatest joy as a Montessori Educator.
