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! 
I offer affordable online Montessori and homeschool programs for birth to age nine. Sample lesson activities, PDFs, and photo galleries go here.
