"Education begins at birth."
- Dr.Maria Montessori
Tina's love of young children brought her to Mission Montessori shortly after we opened in 2009. After many years of providing childcare in her home she began her Montessori journey as an assistant teacher while pursuing her child development education. Later she obtained training in RIE, Resources for infant educaring which goes hand in hand w/ the Montessori philosophy and became a lead teacher. Tina is passionate about providing a beautiful learning environment. She has the gift of creativity and loves to make new materials and unique learning opportunities for her young students. In her free time she enjoys shopping, dining out and spending time with family especially her young granddaughter who lives close by.
