I first heard the name “Maria Montessori” when I was 7 years old and my mother began taking Montessori training in the 1960’s. By the time I graduated from high school my mother had started her own Montessori school in Los Gatos, California. I helped at the school during the day while taking early childhood education courses in the evening.
In 1977, my mother opened the school here in Morgan Hill. I did my Montessori training and worked for 12 years as a head teacher and assistant administrator at Casa Maria Montessori School in Los Gatos. In 1992, when my mom passed away, I took ownership of this school. I am proud to carry on my mom’s legacy here at Montessori Learning for Living.
