Hi there! My name is Kali and I am passionate about the montessori philosophy of teaching. The Montessori approach develops not only a love of learning within the child, but fosters their
independence, confidence and values. Dr. Maria Montessori felt that the goal of early childhood education should not be to fill the child's head with facts, but rather "to cultivate a natural desire to learn." I have cared for kids who are 10 months - 14 years old. The last 3 years I have been a nanny to the same family with two children. I am a huge animal lover. It is very vital to me that every child that I have the pleasure of developing a relationship with feels important, heard, and happy! I worked at an elementary school for a year and it was a job that I will never forget. I love outside activities and staying active is something I encourage everyday. I love to cook, garden, do yoga, hike, read, practice different languages, journal, play games, make art, and listen to music.
