Ms. Mitra is originally from Iran and has lived in Charlotte since she moved to the US in the Fall of 2011.
Mitra earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology from UNC Charlotte in 2017. She returned and completed a Graduate Certificate in Cognitive Science in 2020, studying the cognitive mechanisms involved in learning and decision making. Mitra was drawn to early childhood education during the outbreak of Covid-19 while looking for a more hands-on, rewarding career. She started as an assistant teacher at a Montessori preschool and worked as a toddler lead teacher for a year in her previous school. She is excited to continue with the Charlotte Montessori team for her second year!
Mitra loves to travel and learn about different cultures and cuisines. She also enjoys day trips, hiking, baking, and caring for (not killing) her house plants.
I am very excited to work with the children here at Charlotte Montessori.
