Kira wants to bring a stronger sense of community, joy and peace into the world through working with children in the Montessori environment. Kira grew up in Lexington, MA. There, she attended a Montessori school, and she believes this experience made a lifelong impact. Years later she decided to return to school to pursue becoming a Montessori school teacher. Kira received a B.A. in Holistic Psychology from Lesley University in 2010. She graduated from NEMTEC (New England Montessori Teacher Education Center) in 2013, and received her Master’s in Education with a focus in Montessori from Gordon College in 2019. Kira is grateful to work in a Montessori classroom where the students get to truly learn at their own pace, discover how to collaborate with their peers and grow into confident leaders.
"The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence." - Maria Montessori
Kira loves this quote because autonomy leads to agency and that leads to a happy and confident child.
