There is No Place I Would Rather Be

I have many wonderful memories from my 10 years as a student at The Woods.  I always looked forward to the French Festival and Field Day. These events were special times when the community gathered to celebrate the school. Looking back, I also appreciate growing up with so many of the same peers that started with me in Montessori. Being a “Lifer”, starting in Montessori and graduating from 8th grade, is a unique experience. I am lucky to be able to give my daughter that same experience as she starts her Woods journey in the Montessori preschool.

I have spent the majority of my life here at The Woods, as either a student or teacher. I feel blessed to be part of the community that helped shape me and inform the teacher I am today.

Even though The Woods has grown significantly since I was a student, the sense of community, kindness, and passion for the students' well-being that the teachers bring to the classrooms is still at the core of what The Woods stands for and represents. There is no place I would rather be.
