Academic Excellence | Community Engagement | Environmental Stewardship
Greetings Three Rivers Montessori students and families! I am so excited to partner with you and your families as we navigate the 2022-2023 school year . A little background about me. Most of my experience is in early childhood teaching preschool and kindergarten for about 10 years. I am a licensed K-12 principal in the state of Minnesota and have always tried to embed play-based learning and hands-on experiences for the students I serve. I have experience with early childhood Montessori but am excited to learn about how this translates and evolves as our students progress through their elementary years. You will find I am an open book and always accessible. I believe the family is the first teacher and we must collaborate and partner together to ensure your children thrive.
I am married to my wife Anne, who is a kindergarten teacher in the Buffalo school district. We have two daughters, Harley who is 3, and Eleanor (Elle) who is 18 months old. We live in Dayton and I am thrilled to be serving in a school that is a part of our community. I believe in being invested in the community and serving in the places we live, this is just one small way I can do that. Thank you for welcoming me so warmly into the TRM family, I look forward to getting to know each and every one of you in the days and weeks to come.
Get a glimpse of what TRM has to offer!
Three Rivers Montessori serves Elk River, Rogers, Zimmerman, Otsego, and the surrounding Minnesota areas. It is a public tuition-free elementary school for students and parents interested in an authentic Montessori school experience.
What Is Montessori?
Montessori is based on the philosophy of education and human development. We see the child as a motivated participant in their education, learning through self-instigated actions on the environment. Because of this belief, we emphasize hands on learning, individualized lessons, and cooperative social interactions. Our curriculum is comprised of practical life, language, and mathematics. Geography, history, science, art, music, literature, and physical education are also included.
We'd love to get to know you and have you as part of our volunteer team.
Let us know if you'd like to be involved.
We are looking for potential Board Members, Sub-committee members and Parent Committee members.
