Miss Camille, Director of Education
I am very proud of our school. The teachers, assistants, and administrators have a deep respect for children and a true belief in the capacity for each child to learn. I share these values.
I am a professional educator who has taught children in multi-age Montessori settings for grades K-6. I recently earned my Doctorate in Education. I am an assistant professor at Minnesota State University Moorhead. I teach classes in literacy, classroom management, and assessment at MSUM.
My role at Children's Montessori Center is to provide support to teachers and families and to assist in curriculum decisions. I am also a core member of our development team, and help our school to maintain its vision.
My husband and I live in Fargo with our daughter, Tessa. Our grown children attend college and work in the area. We cherish the time we spend together and are proud of each of our kids. I love to read, travel, and visit as many art exhibits as I can each year. As a life-long learner, I am immensely content in my profession as an educator, and I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to work with your child.
Mr. Jason, Administrator/Director
I have been going to school since I was four years old. As a young child I attended schools in Tennessee, Wisconsin, Texas, and Minnesota. After graduating high school, I attended Bemidji State University where I obtained my degree in Elementary Education. Then, I began my teaching career at Moorhead Public Schools where I taught grades Kindergarten to 4th Grade. Currently I help lead Children's Montessori Center and am working towards my master's degree in Education Leadership through Minnesota State University at Moorhead.
I was introduced to Montessori education through our daughter's own experiences at a Montessori school and was immediately drawn to the philosophy that each child is capable of learning through discovery in a prepared environment designed to inspire. As I learn more, my passion for Montessori education continues to grow.
Working with children has always been the joy of my work. It is our desire to have a beautiful and peaceful school for children to come to. I have met many wonderful families through the years at Children's Montessori Center and have made many friends as well. I look forward to working with and meeting new families and a continued joy in what I do.
