Due to the success of this year and ongoing interest in the great work that we are doing at the Yukon Montessori School, we are increasing our class size and bringing in a second teacher.
We are pleased to announce that Laurie Parker will be joining us in September.
Laurie was raised in the small town of Hanover Ontario. She graduated from Brock University with a combined degree in English and Sociology, then completed her Casa Montessori diploma with the Toronto Montessori Institute. After more than 20 years of exciting Casa experience, Laurie wanted to try a new challenge and so for the past six years has worked in the Lower Elementary class of Sunshine Montessori School in Stratford Ontario.
Every day in the classroom confirms for Laurie that Dr. Montessori was absolutely right about how children should be educated. Laurie and her husband Vance are looking forward to many adventures in Whitehorse. They have four children, a cat named Baird, and a hedgehog named Henry.
