Erin has a deep love and respect for the philosophy behind Montessori classes and has been an integral part of our Montessori classes since 2008. She has her early childhood Montessori certification as well as a bachelor’s degree in comparative religions, which includes a certificate in peace studies. Erin has been working with young children for more than 15 years and is inspired every day by their curiosity, openness, enthusiasm and love for life.
Erin gives high priority to creating a family feel of community and respect in Montessori classes. She has a gift for bringing joy to everyday experiences and the ability to notice and celebrate every child’s unique contributions.
Jess is working towards earning her Masters in Early Childhood Education and her Montessori Certification from University of Wisconsin River Falls. She received a bachelor’s degree with dual majors in Early Modern Literature and Theater from the University of Wisconsin Madison.
Jess is passionate about storytelling, environmental education, and guiding children through love and logic principles. She first became interested in teaching when her family became respite foster care workers.
Jess was intrigued by the Montessori method after meeting her husband whose mother was the principal of an Early Childhood Montessori School. She hopes to embody the Montessori Method giving children the ability to learn at their own pace, and embrace spontaneous joy and wonder.
