“My interest and commitment to Montessori education began 30 years ago at MSLF where my daughters attended the toddler program. I am indebted to MSLF for introducing me and my family to Maria Montessori’s vision of ‘an education for life’. It has had an extraordinary impact on the happiness and success of my now adult daughters’ lives. I am excited to rejoin the MSLF community and partner with teachers, staff, and parents to fulfill our mission of providing each child with a life-long love of learning.”
