After graduating from college, Heather was introduced to Montessori through a friend. When she went to observe the Montessori classroom, she saw children independently engaged with beautiful hands on materials in a peaceful environment. Heather knew she had found the perfect fit. Acorn's glorious campus, friendly collaborative staff and high Montessori standards are what brought Heather to teach in Toddler House. Her favorite Dr. Montessori quote is, "He does it with his hands, by experience, first in play and then through work. The hands are the instruments of man's intelligence." (Absorbent Mind)
Besides teaching, Heather enjoys spending time with her family, cooking or baking, long walks, yoga and reading.
