Teachers

Our teachers lead the classroom, working together to give each child the individualized guidance they need to reach their full potential.  BGSU students, faculty  and parent volunteers provide additional programming throughout the year.

Emily has served as an instructor of art, science and geography for a Montessori Teacher Training Program, as well as a mentor and supervisor to many BGSU pre-service teachers and Montessori teachers in training. Emily’s one wish is that all children could be educated in a Montessori environment, because all children want to learn successfully.
