Meet Our People

All Preschool teachers at Four Seasons Montessori Preschool and Kindergarten are registered through the province and hold current first aid tickets, have passed criminal record checks and have experience working with young children.

At Four Seasons Montessori we believe strongly in employing teachers who listen and engage your child to encourage the best possible learning experience in their early learning years.

 

Montessori Preschool Classroom

Miss Sarah is the lead teacher for the morning and the afternoon programs in the preschool classroom. Sarah’s work as a full-time nanny brought the opportunity to also be a support worker in a Montessori program. This experience led Sarah to take the AMI Montessori teacher training. Sarah brings the materials and the lessons alive with her enthusiasm and passion for teaching.

Miss Adrienne is the Montessori assistant in the preschool classroom; she is also the licensing manager for our school. It was Adrienne’s initial placement as a CDC support worker in a Montessori classroom that led her to take the NAMC Montessori training. She is dedicated to the quality of the program and the safety and care of the children.

 

Montessori All Day Classroom

Miss Donna is the lead teacher in the all day classroom; she also contributes to the website and newsletters with her writing and photography. Donna’s training in art & design, and teaching art classes to young children, led her to take the AMI Montessori teacher training. It is her love for learning and community that keeps her passion for teaching vibrant.

Miss Vickie is the ECE assistant in the all day classroom. Her first exposure to early childhood education began as a parent, volunteering, then as teacher’s helper, and then to take her ECE training. As an assistant in the Montessori program, Vickie expresses a deep understanding of guiding, teaching, and caring for children.

Support Staff

Miss Shalayna is our support staff for both the preschool and the all day classrooms. Her background and experience working with children is extensive. She is currently working on her ECE certification with the goal to devote her career to the education of young children. Shalayna sets a high standard, instilling respect and integrity in every aspect of our program.

Owner  

Mr. Keith I was born and raised in Prince Rupert. My family lineage is comprised of teachers: my mother had a degree in bio-chemistry; my father was a vice principal in Prince Rupert; my grandmother taught in Port Alberni in the 1920’s. My formal education originated in music and culminated with a music diploma and grade 10 Royal Conservatory. I continue to pursue my passion for music at the piano. It was my background in small business that led me to join Four Seasons in the capacity of ‘retooling’ the administration. I soon fell in love with the Montessori method and purchased the school in September 2010. My dedication to Montessori as an educational model is reflected by my work with the Vancouver Island Montessori Association and professional development in Early Childhood Education.
