Ms Elma is a credentialed Montessori teacher, and has had many years of experience working with preschool and kindergarten children.
She moved to our area from an out of state Montessori school – a school whose director called her a key employee “who set the standard of excellence for professional Montessori instruction and truly loves the children.” Ms Elma has held lead teacher positions at Montessori schools since earning her Montessori Early Childhood Credential, and regularly participates in continuing education Montessori workshops.
She has worked as a Bilingual Kindergarten Enrichment Specialist and is using her skills with our students here at Whole Child Academy.
Ms Elma feels that the Montessori system is where her heart is, and she joined our family at Whole Child Academy because she was “eager to return to a Montessori environment in a school that truly incorporates the method, in the spirit in which it was conceived by Maria Montessori.”
In her spare time Ms Elma likes to read, cook, work out, and play with her dog Paloma.
