Michael, a Boston native, traveled to the Pacific Northwest many years ago by way of an oil leaking 1988 Nissan Stanza for the purpose of fish packing on Bristol Bay, fueled with college angst. Later, while slinging spandex as an inside sales rep for a Swedish apparel company, he volunteered teaching English. Jumping ship, he landed at culinary school. In this moment, he reflected on time spent teaching at night, read a few educational texts and gravitated towards Montessori. This began the full steam ahead transformation into full fledged Montessorian, a label he will maintain for the foreseeable future. He hopes to inspire a lifelong joy and curiosity in learning for the yutes of the world. His personal teaching philosophies include the Four Agreements, Servant Leadership, and Outward Bound ideals.
