Rynae was born and raised in the South Bay Area. Her love for travel led her to London, where she lived while obtaining a BA in Developmental Psychology. Over the past 2 decades, Rynae has served children of various backgrounds and abilities in a multitude of ways. It was the birth of her first child that led her on a journey to uncover alternative methods of education and introduced her to the wonderful world of Montessori. She completed her Primary (3-6) training at Montessori Northwest, and is in pursuit of a Masters in Early Education. Rynae finds joy through her work with children, and is excited to begin this journey with GLM. Outside of the classroom, she spends most of her time studying or hanging with her little blended family. She enjoys the outdoors and can be spotted on weekends at the beach, on a hike, or enjoying a good book at the lake.
