Hi, I'm Kat!
I'm the owner of and one of the teachers at Greenpoint Montessori. I began my Montessori career at age 3 when I attended an in-home Montessori school in Charlotte, North Carolina, continuing at public Montessori elementary school until 5th grade.
It wasn't until decades later that I began my teaching career in the dance studio, where I taught dance to hundreds of children over the years. I began to dig at my roots when I realized that I wanted to work with children in a more in-depth way, and began my Montessori studies at Washington Montessori Institute in Baltimore.
After moving to NYC, I received my Early Childhood Montessori credential at West Side Montessori School Teacher Education Program. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Special Education from Concordia College and hold a NY state teaching certification in Early Childhood Special Education.
When I'm not with little ones, you'll most likely find me backpacking in the woods somewhere. Fun fact: I thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail during 2018!
