Meet Miss Sarah
Early Childhood Teacher

Sarah Creese attended the Andover (MA) School of Montessori as a child and has fond memories of the warmth and community of the Montessori classroom. She was eager to recreate those same feelings as a teacher and was drawn back to Montessori after teaching in a traditional school for several years. She loves teaching and says it can never be boring, because you make new friends to learn with every year! Sarah graduated from Wheaton College with a BA in English and completed her Montessori training at the Northeast Montessori Institute. In her spare time, she enjoys reading mystery and fantasy books and spending time with her best friends. Her favorite color is pink! #snhma

Meet Ms Heather!
Infant Teacher

Heather was drawn to the Montessori approach when introduced to the method in a couple of Early Childhood classes. Montessori feels like a great fit for her because she loves learning from and experiencing nature: in her free time she enjoys being outdoors; hiking, kayaking, swimming, and taking nature walks. Heather has worked with infants and toddlers for several years and feels that nothing else would truly fulfill her spirit. She says that being connected to infants and understanding their needs is like an art to her, and feels that it is her duty to assist each child in her care by observing them and being completely mindful of their needs. Heather also loves doing arts and crafts, and spending time with her daughter and their pets! #snhma
