What I do at MNW
I am a Primary Trainer, and as such I listen, learn, laugh and share.

What I like about MNW
My favorite thing about working at MNW is that I feel like I am a member of a fabulous team that is creating a revolution of Global LOVE and PEACE through Montessori Education!

A favorite destination
I love going to Manzanita, Oregon, walking on the beach on a cold and windy winter afternoon, frolicking in the white and fluffy sea foam as it tumbles and rolls along the shore. And then afterwards, soaking in a hot tub with a hot whiskey toddy.

Cats or dogs
I love cats because they are experts at placing themselves perfectly, symmetrically, and languidly in the best spot in any environment.

A time of day
My favorite time of day is when I am climbing into my soft and lovely bed, with a good book, clean and warm and cozy cozy. This could be morning, noon or night.

Words to live by
“Before enlightenment, chop wood carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood carry water” (Ancient Zen Saying)

A joke
Why was six afraid of seven? Because seven ate nine! (hahahaha)
