Ms. Mariaelena started working with children right out of high school as an aftercare teacher in Homestead, FL at a Montessori school over ten years ago. Watching the children engage with the materials in the prepared Montessori environment inspired Mariaelena to further her knowledge about Montessori and earn her Primary Montessori certification in 2012. She truly cares about the incredible foundation the Montessori philosophy gives preschoolers. Ms. Mariaelena attended Johnson and Wales university for baking & pastry, so in her spare time she enjoy making cakes and cupcakes for friends and family.
Her favorite thing about teaching is seeing that smile and connection when she have helped a child with something as little as putting on a band aid or learning something new.
It is truly a privilege for me to work among such dedicated, caring and professional teachers and staff!
