I am excited and honoured to be a part owner and teacher at Mi Casa Montessori.  I am a native Calgarian, and I attended the University of Calgary where I obtained Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education degrees.  I taught for the Calgary Board of Education at the elementary level for 7 years before I took time off to raise my children.


I have three daughters who all attended a Montessori program.  After my daughters each completed three years of Montessori, I was inspired to learn more about the Montessori approach and began my career as a Montessori teacher.  Over the past 6 years, teaching in a Montessori preschool, I have developed a true passion for the Montessori method and philosophy of teaching.  

I am so blessed to have this amazing opportunity to work with beautiful children and amazing teachers. I was born in South Africa where I grew up in Johannesburg and studied a Bachelor of Commerce degree at the University of Stellenbosch. My family and I moved to Calgary in 2007.


Spending lots of time volunteering at my daughter's Montessori preschool I fell in love with the program, and decided to obtain my Montessori Teaching Diploma with the North American Montessori Center in Vancouver BC. I took up a full time teaching position with a Montessori Preschool in 2009. Seven years after arriving in Calgary, God has blessed me richly with the opportunity to be part owner of Mi Casa Montessori.
