Ms. Jenna, owner/director of Stonebridge Montessori School, is a teacher and devotee of Montessori principles with over 15 years experience. She has a BA in Early Childhood Development from Lesley University and has taught children ranging in age from 3 yrs to 8 yrs in four Montessori schools in New England and one in Bracknell, United Kingdom. Ms. Jenna is AMS (American Montessori Schools) certified in both Early Childhood (ages 3 to 6) and Lower Elementary (ages 6 to 9). In addition to AMS certification, she is a certified instructor/facilitator in RCB (Redirecting Children's Behavior) and has both Lifeguard and CPR qualifications.
Ms. Jenna has been praised for her creative approach to activities for young children. This comes from her passion for teaching and from her diverse personal experiences. For example, her nine months in Alaska tutoring children and driving sled dogs, and eight months as a hand on a windjammer ship out of Camden, Maine provide a wealth of ideas that she puts into her curriculum for the children.
As the director and lead teacher, Ms. Jenna will give the children superb education and direction in line with the principles embodied in the Montessori approach to teaching and learning.
