Allow me to introduce…Kelly Scott

We are very excited to welcome Kelly into our Yukon Montessori family as the lower elementary teacher this fall.

Kelly Scott PicKelly finished her B.A. at Bishop’s University where she studied French, Spanish, and Sociology. Prior to joining Montessori she worked in Toronto as a French tutor, building up a rapport with families around the city. During her four years with Montessori Kelly has specialized in teaching French to both casa and elementary levels. When Kelly is not in the classroom you can find her at choir practice, crocheting, painting, or enjoying Motown music night!
