Kristen Hardin first encountered the Montessori method as a student of one of our fellow teachers, Mrs. Siromi. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s in Education and English, Master’s in Special Education and Biological Sciences and currently pursuing her PhD. in Psychology and Medicinal Science. She is currently taking her Master’s in Montessori Training under The Center for Guided Montessori Studies, which will position her to train and develop other teachers locally and internationally.
After teaching and coordinating Special Education within the public school system for numerous years, she realized her passion for Montessori and joined our team in 2011. Over the years Kristen has deepened her understanding of Montessori principles through parent education and teacher training and is now the Upper Elementary Lead Teacher and is now the Upper Campus Director.
