Faculty Bio

Angela graduated from East Carolina University with a major in Political Science, a minor in English and a concentration in Russian Studies. After graduating, Angela began her career with IBM in the Marketing Department in Boca Raton, Florida. She became intrigued with the Montessori Method when her son attended Summit Private School in Boca Raton. After seven years with IBM, she left and began teaching computers at Summit. After observing Montessori classrooms at Summit, she decided to take her 6-9 training through Summit Montessori Teacher Training Institute. She has focused on integrating technology into the Montessori curriculum and has spoken at three different conferences on this topic. However, over the past two years has begun concentrating on how the brain learns and its correlation with the Montessori Method of education. She taught Upper Elementary at Claremont Montessori School in Boca Raton for three years. Currently Angela is working as a Montessori/Educational consultant.
