Owner/Director and Certified Montessori Teacher
Miss Meredith started working at Spokane Montessori as an assistant in 1995 while attending high school. Even as a teenager she was amazed at the ability and interest that children had where learning was concerned. Four year olds were adding, reading and focused intensely on academic activities. She was in awe of the desire that children had to develop skills that seemed far beyond their years and a love of learning that could last them a lifetime!
She completed her Montessori Institute of America teacher training in 1997 and graduated from Whitworth College in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts in Literature. Since then she has worked at Spokane Montessori as a Lead Teacher, Program Supervisor and Director only to purchase the school in September 2011. In 2014 she completed her Child Development Associate Credential and in 2016 she completed her Master of Education with a Montessori emphasis through William Howard Taft University. Later in 2016, she completed her children’s yoga teacher certificate and continues to enjoy bringing her passion for the process to her school community through movement.
She is the mother of two children who both attend Eastern Washington University. She spends her spare minutes reading, walking, practicing yoga, spending time with friends, enjoying the beautiful city we live in and traveling with her family.
