Mrs. Sara Hilden, Director/Owner - email@example.com
I am a Certified Montessori Directress through Montessori Educational Programs International and bring 8 years of experience to my position. My teaching career began at UND in Early Childhood Development and as I explored various theories of education, I found that the Montessori method was the best match for my style and philosophy.
I completed my Montessori Education in Kansas City, MO and returned home to Bismarck with enthusiasm to open my own school. I believe that respecting each child fosters an attitude of mutual respect that is deeply necessary for learning. Our classrooms are filled with practical work that enhances each child’s self-sufficiency. You can explore Montessori principles later in the handbook, but the idea that “Education is not something which the teacher does, but is a natural process which develops spontaneously in the human being” is core to our vision. This statement articulates my primary goal for this school: To provide an environment that allows this natural process to develop and to truly nurture each child’s individual spirit. I am extremely happy to be at New Discovery Montessori Center and look forward for the opportunity to team with your family.
