It is with great honor and excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new Principal of Countryside Montessori Charter School. My three years here as a 7th and 8th grade math and science teacher, and as an Associate Principal, have been enriching ones. I became more involved in this amazing school community of students, staff, and families, and more focused on the student-centered Montessori philosophy.
During my time here at CMCS and in collaborating with Montessori leaders from around the country through my courses, I have developed a deep appreciation for the Montessori philosophy that is the foundation for our school.
As Maria Montessori suggests, classrooms should be areas of collaboration and cooperation, not competition. So although we are proud to promote our high test scores, our most important work lies in preparing our students for a full life even at a young age.
Once again, I am so thankful to have the opportunity to bring all that I have experienced and learned as an educator and administrator to my new position. I look forward to getting to know you and your children. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, and ideas that you would like
