In 1986, Country Montessori was founded, by Lucy Lukason, to offer parents a high-quality preschool and kindergarten for their children. In April 2020, my husband and I purchased the school from Lucy. As a young child, there were two things I aspired to be: a mother and a teacher. I am a mother of two young girls and have been a teacher in many capacities over the years: preschool, 1st grade, 2nd grade and special education through fourth grade.
My career opportunities have allowed me to teach in a variety of school districts, each giving me a new perspective on education and a vast array of knowledge to prepare me for this new role. My experiences in public school have also taught me that I do not fit into the mold shaped by the state of Massachusetts for public school educators.
