I am so thrilled to work as a Montessori guide in the Temecula area. I love this town and would love to give back to the community through my educational services. Guiding young children to become healthy, happy, and spirited individuals, is my priority. My passion for the Montessori Method has changed my vision of children and the future of the world.

Little Horse Montessori
Scientific observation has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment. The task of the teacher becomes that of preparing a series of motives of cultural activity, spread over a specially prepared environment, and then refraining from obtrusive interference. Human teachers can only help the great work that is being done, as servants help the master. Doing so, they will be witnesses to the unfolding of the human soul and to the rising of a New Man who will not be a victim of events, but will have the clarity of vision to direct and shape the future of human society.
