Ms. Maria came to us at Exploring Minds Montessori in 2013. As a parent she was impressed with the curriculum and overall dedication that she saw at EMM. Upon receiving news of an opening for her daughter she was delighted to enroll her in a community that felt like family. Over the course of the years she has gained experience as a Montessori childcare assistant. When the opportunity came for her to join our team full-time she knew this was the place she wanted to continue to be a part of. She has earned her way to becoming an Associate Teacher in our 2.5 – 3.5 year old class at our Valley Glen campus where she teaches Spanish & Art. She takes her passion for handmade artisan goods and develops a curriculum that the children can enjoy.
