Mia began her Montessori journey as a Primary student in 1969. She has fond memories of scrubbing, spooning and, of course, building the pink tower.
During her junior year in college, Mia became reacquainted with Montessori when she conducted a study as part of a marketing class. Mia received her BA in Business from Lake Forest College. She went on to obtain a Primary Montessori Certificate from the Montessori Institute of Milwaukee and has taught at the Primary level since 1988. From 2000-2003, Mia took a three-year sabbatical from teaching to serve as MSLF’s Admission Director.
Her daughter, Gianna, graduated from the Adolescent Program in 2016 and and started as a freshman at University of Iowa’s nursing program this past fall.
