I am the teacher with purple hair, which is what most children exclaim over. The children call me Mrs. Jessica or various cute renditions of that. I have been teaching in various schools from 1997 to the present and I am starting my 5th year here at Discovery Montessori. I have been the lead teacher in the Kendall class for 3 years and enjoy fostering a love for learning in children. I love teaching in the Montessori environment because we instill independence by allowing the children to choose what interests them. I look forward to meeting the new little personalities that mix with my returning students.
Has completed her Montessori certificate from North American Montessori Center (NAMC). She has been a staff member at Discovery Montessori since 1997.
