What do you love about Montessori?
I love the independent work environments and the space that children are given to cultivate their own love of learning.
What’s been your favorite trip?
In 2017 we tour Ireland by way of Dublin, Galway, and Donegal. During part of the trip, we drove through Killargue, the small village where relatives of mine once lived. We visited the house that used to be the old post office they worked at, and Liddy’s Loft, a stone dance hall raised by family hands. It’s fallen into disrepair now, but it was an amazing feeling to touch the stones and see the place where my relatives would sit and fiddle. We can’t wait to go back.
What’s your favorite quote?
“Survival is insufficient.”
Do you have pets?
Our silly, giant dog, Topher, and two cats, Cooper and Karmina.
