The mission of Montessori NOW is to be a source of information, resource and consultation for the Montessori community.
Christine’s experiences and understanding of Montessori education, as a school founder, school director, and lead early childhood teacher are the foundation of her commitment to an “authentic” Montessori education for all children. She knows the importance of advocacy as our schools and state communities support this effort. She has helped found, served as a Board member, and currently consults with several state organizations in their advocacy work. She has presented workshops on policy and advocacy at numerous state and national conferences.
As an educator, Christine shares her passion for Montessori as an instructor for two Montessori Teacher Training Programs and has provided field supervision and program support to both independent and public Montessori schools. With a deep commitment to students with special needs throughout her career, Christine now shares her years of experience working with special needs in the Montessori setting through consultations with schools to develop plans of support for their students with special needs and workshop presentations for schools, and state and national conferences.
