Director & Owner
Ms. Doha graduated from Saint Joseph University in Beirut with a Master’s Degree in Education. Seeking a higher degree, she enrolled in a PhD program at Paris VIII University in France. During these formative years, she was introduced to Montessori method. Yet, it was until she came across Sainte Agnes Montessori that she fully understood how the method enriched the quality of learning for children. She was moved by the love the children acquired for learning through the environment and, the level of respect among students & staff.
Inspired she moved to California where she taught at a Montessori school in Hollywood for eleven years. In 2003 she founded Exploring Minds Montessori Preschool in Valley Glen, and in 2012 the campus in Sherman Oaks opened its doors.
