Miriam LenzTeacher, Mercill Campus
My name is Miriam Lenz and I am an Aide in the Montessori classroom. I have been teaching Montessori preschool for thirty years. I obviously love it. I previously taught elementary school and loved that too. When my oldest son was preschool age we put him in a Montessori preschool. We were in awe of what he learned. Then his teacher moved. We had two other children who needed Montessori. We hired a nanny and I took the American Montessori program in Boulder, Colorado. I bought the school and have been teaching since that time. In 2000 I was asked to bring my program to what was then the Community Children’s Project. C.C.P. evolved into Children’s Learning Center. My husband, Bob, and I moved to Jackson in 1975 from Montana. We have four children, three of whom have been Montessori trained.
