“This is my family’s tenth year at Austin Montessori School.  My three children are currently in Upper and Lower Elementary. I was introduced to Montessori by my husband, Bob, who went to a Montessori school for his primary years and wanted our children to have a similar experience.  After visiting an AMS open house, I thought “WOW, I wish I had this learning environment”, as I recalled my own elementary years of being forced to do endless worksheets. Having volunteered for numerous placemats, auction projects, and organizing of the south campus End of Year gifts, I was inspired to take on the AMS Parents Association presidency to make volunteering easier.  I wanted to encourage more parents to volunteer by sharing experiences and knowledge amongst all the AMS communities. I hope by the end of this year to make volunteering at AMS more accessible and enjoyable for parents, as well as building a greater sense of community.”
