After figuring out my path in college, I felt drawn to children. I continued my education at Red Rocks Community College and received my Associate’s degree. I also have my group leader qualification and my director center certification. As I discovered, the Montessori method was the only way I could see myself helping children develop into their own individual being, I was hired as Toddler assistant in 2004 at MAC. In 2006, I received my Montessori certification and became a lead in a Toddler room for a few years and have been the Directeress in Nido 3 since 2009.
The classroom focuses on two basic needs of the infant—a safe bonded relationship between adult and child and the development of the child’s growing sense of self and independence.
The word ‘Nido’ is derived from the Italian word meaning ‘nest’ and it conveys the spirit of the infant environment. Our classrooms are comforting, warm and inviting with care being taken to provide nurturing, calm stimulation to enhance the development of the young child. The classroom focuses on two basic needs of the infant—a safe bonded relationship between adult and child and the development of the child’s growing sense of self and independence.
I earned a Bachelors degree with honors from the University of Rochester and am certified from the Montessori Institute of Colorado in 0-3 years. I have been a Nido lead at MAC since October 2009, but was previously held the position of Toddler lead at Webster Montessori. I worked as a nanny for 3 years previously, as well as a tutor and did after school care at the YMCA.
