How did you learn about Montessori? 
I first learned about Montessori education when choosing a pre-school for my oldest son. Both of my sons attended a Montessori school from Primary through the Adolescent Program.

What’s been your favorite trip?
While I love travelling to new places and have been to destinations around the world, my heart remains in Italy. If I can go anywhere on a whim, it is back to Italy where I have made many friends.

Fun fact: Perhaps people find this interesting, or at least surprising…I absolutely love heavy metal music. I like it really loud, too!
