Ms. Rebecca joined the CLMS community when the new school opened its doors in 1985. Through the years she taught in both the Early Childhood and Upper Elementary classrooms and was blessed with the opportunity to be each daughter’s teacher. Montessori education runs strong in her family as one of her daughters went on to become a Montessori teacher, and the other sends her children to a Montessori school as well. Ms. Rebecca holds a BA in the teaching of French from the University of Illinois, and has completed both Elementary 1 and Elementary 11 Montessori training. She has been a teacher trainer for the language curriculum for Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center and the Center for Montessori Teacher Education in North Carolina. She has completed On-Site Verification training and has participated in many American Montessori Society’s reaccreditation processes. She currently enjoys her administrative role at CLMS where she can use her accounting skills gained from employment with Motorola and Mobil Oil Corporation. She loves to travel, play with her four grandchildren, and ride her horse.
