Ms. DeSio was born in the Northern Central Valley and was raised in Sacramento. As a young child, she attended a Montessori school in Davis. She received a Bachelor’s in Humanities from The Evergreen State College in Washington State. While working on her degree, she had the opportunity to work in education in various capacities, including as a paraprofessional educator, a tutor, and as a research assistant. Ms. DeSio moved to the Bay Area after completing her degree in 2015, and worked for a number of years as a Behavioral Therapist. It was during this time that she rediscovered Montessori and began to develop a passion for Early Childhood Education. She began teaching preschool in 2017 and she joined GLM in 2018. Ms. DeSio believes the child to be a capable and competent agent in their own learning and enjoys facilitating their growth. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time at home cooking, reading, making electronic music, and cuddling with her cat. She also enjoys getting out into nature for hiking and swimming.
Hands down, this is a special place on earth and despite the good and bad that comes with disruption in this world for children, I feel good knowing my boys built a good foundation at GLM.
GLM has been a magical place and a transformative experience for my grand daughters!
We are so happy that she can return to GLM. We miss it so much. It is truly a uniquely wonderful school.
