About the Montessori Teacher

There never was a child so lovely
but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Hi! My name is Ms. Nolan, the trained and certified Montessori teacher. I've taught Montessori in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1986.
 
I took my Montessori primary training in 1986 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco with the late head mistress, Ursula Thrush. I took my Montessori elementary (6-9) training in 1988 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco (with the late head mistress Ursula Thrush) through the University Extension, University of California Berkeley. I received an MA from San Francisco State University.
 
I am also an author, a stay-at-home work-at-home mom, a blogger, and a webmaster. I guess you can call me a one-mom operation! My son was born with Down syndrome in 2004, and being at home with him, using Montessori education since birth, has been a blessing in disguise!

My Montessori Organizer

One more thing before you go!

The Montessori Organizer by Montessori teacher and mom, Lisa Nolan, is designed for moms who are beginning their journey into incorporating Montessori in their home environment! It is over 90 pages long, printer friendly, black and white text, easy to use, go at your own pace, and created by a trained Montessori teacher and mom! It includes a list of must-haves for two- and three-year olds, and a “how to” on giving a Three-Period Lesson. It is ideal for preschool-age children, but can also work for toddlers age 24 months and up (they grow fast)! We will have a 6-9 homeschool organizer in the coming months.

The Montessori Organizer will organize by 1) Montessori subjects, 2) months of the year, 3) seasons, and 4) themes. You will be able to list 1) materials including DIY and printables, affordable, and expensive, 2) list Montessori sellers, 3) list lessons you have given, 3) list YouTube lessons to watch, 4) list rooms in the home environment, 5) list Montessori blogs, books, groups of interest, and much more!

This organizer is NOT a Montessori album. It does NOT include lessons or activities. It does NOT include images or photos. It does NOT include a filled-in list of Montessori materials to buy/make.
