What I do at MNW
I support the AMI Primary Trainers as they offer our fabulous Primary Teacher Training Course. This translates into a lot of listening, reading, talking, watching, emailing, data entry, cutting, counting, gluing, dusting, joking, singing, and other assorted miscellany. I also am present for students as they undertake the strenuous and transformative task of becoming a Montessorian.

What I like about MNW
I love the earnest dedication present in every staff member and student here at MNW. We’re all here to do our very best work every day to help free the human potential. I feel so lucky to have so much heart and inspiration infused into my career!

A favorite destination
Not quite a “destination”, but the drive through the Oregon Coast Range mountains on 26, then the even curvier and denser Highway 53 to the Nehalem River Valley.

A book (or book series)
Tamora Pierce’s Song of the Lioness series.

A favorite food
Bacon wrapped dates.

Words to live by
Water what you want to grow.

A joke
Favorite joke for 5 year olds: “Why is six afraid of seven? Because seven ate nine."
