About Our Teachers

Miss Amanda

“I love being a positive leader and influence in people’s lives; especially children. Children are the most precious thing in this world. Their pure and uncensored innocence is something to be cherished and encouraged. I attended the Montessori Learning Center as a small child and was blessed with being raised in the very same environment. After I completed the Montessori Training and certification program, I then graduated from The University of Utah with a Bachelors degree in “Family Science and Human Development.” I love providing an environment that will allow them to grow and develop in all the ways that will promote their full potential and happiness. My role as a teacher brings me joy, fulfillment and inspiration. Teaching your precious children is such an honor to me and I truly cherish the moments spent with all of them.”

 

Miss Charity

“I found Montessori when I enrolled my son in the Elementary program, and then my daughter in the Sr. Preschool.  As I began to read and learn more about Montessori, I was astounded and amazed as my children began to blossom right before my eyes!  As opportunities were presented to help at Montessori I became a part of the staff and I was so excited about the things I was learning that I began the Montessori Training program with Miss Ali.  When a Head Teacher position became available, I found a career that has been deeply enriching as I have watched the children grow and learn as Maria Montessori expounded.  The Montessori Training program touched cords within as I have been with these beautiful children. Working with your children is a joy and a privilege.”

“My relationship with the MLC began in 2011 when I enrolled my two children into the Jr and Sr Preschool classrooms. I was happily in alignment with Miss Ali and the school’s philosophy. I immediately saw that they were learning in a way most natural and efficient! My children began to learn the proper social cues and become better at interacting with friends and other adults as well. I was impressed with the growth that I saw in each of them, and we were hooked! The obvious next step was that I needed to learn too! I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to undergo Montessori training myself, it has made me a much better mother and has provided me with rewards beyond measure as a teacher. Working with children is highly rewarding and immensely fulfilling. It has filled me in ways I could never have dreamed! I love every moment I have been able to spend with your little ones and look forward the future children that my class may be graced with. Thank you for sharing them with me!”

 

Miss Shyloh

“I have always been fascinated by the Montessori Method, especially since I was home schooled using it and Spalding as a child. So I was very excited to have the opportunity of taking Montessori training in 2001 shortly after returning from George Wythe College. Over the more than 8 years, I have worked here, I have become even more convinced of its value. I am continually amazed at what these children can do and love seeing their faces light up as they learn and grow. Over and over again I have seen children excel and go beyond anyone’s expectations. I am so thankful for the opportunity to work with your children and be a part of this amazing program. As a parent I am continually impressed with the things my daughter has learned in her five years here at Montessori.”

 

Miss Andrea

“I first discovered Montessori while attending Brigham Young University, and I was immediately impressed.  The students were in a loving, comfortable environment and were independently and happily being productive. I began working with the Jr. Preschool Program in 2009, and soon moved up to the Sr. Preschool, where I was personally trained by Miss Ali in the Montessori Method.  I continued to train and learn the process of the downstairs Elementary classes, were I am currently teaching.  I have seen so many students learn, grow, and become successful because they were given the tools to do so.  Reading “Montessori from the Start” gave me even more insight to how wonderful the program was, as I became a mommy and enrolled my own sweet daughter at the school. I am continually amazed by this program and the great strides my students make as we teach them the skills that will help them succeed in all aspects of their lives.”

 

Miss Kirsten

“I like to consider myself both an educator and a ‘creative inspirer’. Having grown up in a large family, what drew me to teaching was my love of taking care of my younger siblings and teaching them. It all started when I helped teach my younger brother and sister to read, since then I’ve gone on to study elementary education at Northland Pioneer college in Arizona. I have been sharing my passion of learning at Montessori Learning Center since 2009 when I began my Montessori Training and certification and trained with Miss Ali. I immediately recognized and loved the strong educational foundation it provides in children’s lives and I continue to see that development unfold. I am so happy to be with Montessori for what a privilege it is to work with children to develop in them a genuine love of learning, to see the light in their eyes, and make learning one of the best experiences ever.”

Miss Melodi

“From a very young age, I knew that I wanted to teach and work with children. I have always been fascinated by their innocence and intelligence. At age 21, I completed my first year teaching at a public elementary school, graduated from BYU in Elementary Education, got married and had twins! I continued studying and reading anything I could about teaching, child raising, positive discipline, healthy sleeping habits, and emotional intelligence. As soon as I found out about the Montessori Learning Center, I was not only eager to have my children attend but I was very excited to be trained as a Montessori teacher. When placed in an environment which is conducive to learning, growth, and creativity, children actually love to learn! The principles, life lessons, exceptional methods of teaching reading and writing, and the love that each child receives individually, are only a few of the reasons I love being part of this school.”
