Head of School

I am inspired and honored by the opportunity to serve as Head of School for Steamboat Montessori and I am incredibly excited to be joining such a committed and passionate community of educators, board members and parents who have put so much heart and soul into creating this amazing school.

I am a long-time believer in the Charter School movement. Much like the Montessori movement whose aim is to nurture the development of the whole child, the Charter School movement aims to bring high quality educational offerings to diverse groups of children throughout the country. Steamboat Springs is very fortunate to have Steamboat Montessori as a public school option. Ours is the only Montessori school in Routt County; it is tuition free for K-5, and offers a tuition based preschool program.

Prior to coming to Steamboat, I resided in Boulder CO where I was Head of School at Jarrow Montessori, Colorado’s first Montessori school. I hold a Primary Montessori teaching degree from Montessori Education Center of the Rockies, as well as a Master’s in Education, and a BA in Psychology from Naropa University. I have been working in the field of holistic and alternative education for over 30 years.

I am joined on this awesome adventure by my wife, Joan.
