A church, a parent, and a teacher with a common desire to have a Christian school with educational excellence, all came together to form our school in the summer of 2004.

How Long Have You Worked At GLM?

5 years

​

Favorite Part about working at GLM?:

I love that our teachers work towards keeping a strong bond among fellow co-worker, parents, and students. I love that GLM  serves more professional families from the area over our competition. We have some of the best support from our families.​

​

Why do you love Montessori education?:

Montessori education has the most logical approach to education the young person. It respects the child as a unique capable, young adult who deserves as much as perfect as anyone else. Instead of the teacher dictating what is learned by everyone at the same time, when. the child shows what their interests are and  the teacher then feeds a child with as much information as they can therefore keeping the child interested in taking much more in.

​

Are You Certified?:

Yes. Going on 3rd year as a Lead Teacher certified through ADMTEI
