My Story

Learn more about Kim.

  • What inspires you about education?

    I think of education as formalized learning. I personally love learning new things every day. That lightbulb that goes on when I learn a new fact or skill gives me energy!

  • How did you discover Montessori?

    Really no experience with Montessori before starting to work here. I guess I’m a Montessori “newbie”.

  • What do you enjoy most about working with your teammates?

    My teammates are intelligent, kind, and understanding and are internally motivated to do their best each and every day! I am enjoying getting to know them.

  • What are your passions, interests, and hobbies?

    First and foremost, my family: Husband of 26 years and two sons (ages 18 and 23). My favorite sport to watch is soccer. I feel like I can appreciate the athleticism and teamwork better now, having spent numerous hours on the pitch watching my sons play over the years. My husband and I will be empty-nesters soon. We love to travel locally and hope to do more exploring abroad. We hike locally, and I hope to take up the game of golf in the very near future. Oh, and I love to READ!!! So I’ll be looking for good intro to Montessori books to read soon. Favorite genre: historical fiction.
