Ms. Becky really connected with the Montessori philosophy and received her Montessori Early Childhood credential from the American Montessori Society in 2010. She has taught in Montessori primary and elementary classrooms for 14 years and is currently the Head Teacher in the Primary 1 classroom.
Ms. Becky grew up in Omaha and has a BA in English from Creighton University. She recently completed a Master of Arts in Education degree from St. Catherine University.
