Meet The Staff
Head of School
Cheryl joined us in 2005 obtaining her Montessori diploma from North American Montessori Center. In her out of work time Cheryl enjoys the many non- profit organization boards she sits on which help serve the community she lives in. She spends time reading, swimming and with her family.
Ms. Kathy has been married for 37 yrs. She has done family child care for years and has been working in child care for most of her adult life. She has 4 grown children of her own and has also fostered children. Her children never attended a Montessori school, but later in life, Ms. Kathy realized that she raised her children using Maria's methods. (It's just a natural way to learn!) Ms. Kathy has been working at the Petersham Montessori School since 1998. Her love for children and Maria's methods has kept her grounded in her love for learning. Along with teaching, her other interests are figure skating, hiking, kayaking, camping, any hand crafts such as needle point, knitting, crocheting, and reading.
