Originally from the north Atlanta suburb of Marietta, Georgia, Tara Carroll is now a Charlotte resident and the Assistant Director of Charlotte Montessori School. A dual graduate of the University of Georgia, Tara has a Bachelor of Science degree in Education and a Master of Education degree in Educational Psychology, specializing in gifted and creative education. Prior to moving to Charlotte, Tara taught a range of upper level social science courses at a metro Atlanta private school, led onboarding and mentoring of new teachers, and coordinated technology and professional development for the school. Tara has a heart for serving teachers and families to create an exceptional educational experience. With a long-held respect and passion for the Montessori philosophy and the addition of her own little one, Tara is looking forward to pouring into the development of Charlotte Montessori and investing in the families and staff that make up our wonderful community.
Outside of her career, Tara loves to spend time with her son, Barrett, who is a proud member of Charlotte Montessori as well, husband, Zack, and their three lovable pups. She can often be found cooking or tending to her gardens, and on Saturdays in the fall, will be cheering on her Georgia Bulldogs!
I am very excited to work with the children here at Charlotte Montessori.
