Our Staff

Our staff is the very heart of Grand Lake Montessori. Many have been with us for 20 or more years. They’re extraordinary teachers, administrators, parents, partners and people. Our diversity is genuine. We have staff from the US, Mexico, China, Taiwan, Germany, Tanzania and South Africa. We are multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, and encourage sharing and honoring traditions with the children.
Teachers are listed by classroom.
