I’m Tammie Stockton and I am the Principal/Director of High Desert Montessori. I graduated from Montana State University in Billings with a B.A. in elementary and special education, and obtained a master’s degree from Lesley College in Cambridge, MA with a degree in curriculum and instruction and a second master’s degree from the University of Phoenix in school administration. I have over 20 years of classroom teaching experience within Washoe County School District. I was the Dean of Students at Pine Middle School and Assistant Principal at Bennett Elementary School before coming to High Desert five years ago. I love being an educator and know at High Desert Montessori we meet the needs of students by providing a peaceful, eco-literate and empowering learning environment which is rooted in Montessori ideals. My husband Chris and I have five children and 4 grandchildren. We enjoy spending time with our family hiking, boating and camping in the Sierras. I feel thrilled and honored to be part of such an amazing team at High Desert Montessori Charter School!
