My Why Story

As a child, you would have assumed by my choice of play that I was destined to be a teacher. However, my artist heart took me in a different direction and led me to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography. While I have no regrets about this choice and still enjoy and appreciate photography, another itch in my heart guided me to pursue Montessori education as my husband and I contemplated education options for our (then) future children.

After making the decision to go back to school and pursue a different career, the stars seemed to align and confirm that Montessori is my true calling. The stars continued to align when I met Dr. and Mrs. Sippel who so tenderly welcomed me to San Tan, first as an assistant in the new Montessori Elementary classroom, then as the lead for the past two, going on three, years.  It has been an honor to be a part of this growing program and I look forward to seeing what our future holds!
