What is your experience and training and how did you come to our school?
I have 15 years experience working with children and families in educational and therapeutic settings. AA in Early childhood education, MSW-minor in Women’s Studies, Licensed Master Social Worker #M-10049, , Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor intern.
I came to High Desert Montessori in 2016 as a teacher assistant after moving to Reno. I had two daughters enrolled in an adolescent program and one in elementary. It was the perfect fit for us! HDMS supported me through higher education and I am so happy to be rejoining HDMS community as School Counselor.
Why do you believe in our public charter Montessori school?
I believe in High Desert Montessori Charter School because it provides children and families with quality and equitable Montessori Education which promotes dignity and worth of all people and fosters importance on human relationships while practicing integrity and competence. As a school, HDMS proves their commitment to children and families of the Reno/Sparks area by closing the gap between Montessori Education and socio-economic barriers by providing free to the public Montessori Education.
