Welcome to Hursey Montessori School!
Our theme this year is "Whatever it Takes!"

Thank you for visiting my web page!  Hursey Montessori is an exciting place to be. I am looking forward to serving as an instructional coach this year.  
       I earned my bachelor's degree in Psychology and Sociology from James Madison University, my Elementary and Early Childhood certifications from the University of Richmond, and my Master of Education in Reading and Literacy from Benedictine University. I completed training in both upper and lower elementary Montessori curricula from the Seacoast Center for Education. During the summer of 2018, I completed classes for the endorsement to teach gifted and talented students. This is my 8th year at Hursey and I am very blessed to be a part of this family!
