Welcome to the Farm!
After many years as a teacher and a school director, I made the leap to start a school in my home. As an American Montessori Society certified teacher, I love and believe in the Montessori Method.
My favorite moment in teaching is when I see "the light" come on when a child grasps a concept. I want to teach children to be lifelong learners and lovers of learning. I believe that a child's education should be broad and filled with fascination. One day we may be searching for insects, another day we may be working with wood or reading a classic novel. Whatever each child is working on, I want them to absorb as much as they can. Practical life skills and responsibility are high on my list as well as being able to work and live together peaceably.
I teach from a faith-based foundation and Christian world-view. What we believe is at the core of who we are and it affects the way we perceive and interact with the world around us.
