I have been employed with Casa Dia Montessori since August 2001, just 2 months after the doors opened. I started as a Lead Teacher and became the Assistant Director 6 months later. In 2006 I became the Director of the center. I graduated from Meramec Community College with my Associate Degree in Applied Sciece, Early Care and Education in May 2001. I received my Montessori Certification in 2007. I have been working with children and in childcare centers for a total of 23 years. My passion is to care for children, educate them and prepare them for life. My husband & I married in June 2002 and have 2 children. We were blessed with a son in 2007 and a daughter in 2011. We are all family at Casa and I love each and every child who passes through these doors.
