At the Montessori school of Cheyenne, we feel very lucky to have caring, highly qualified, and loyal teachers and administrators. Many of our teachers have been at the school for over five years and some staff have served the school for 10-20 years. Many of our teachers hold degrees related to children and education and all of our teachers are certified by the American Montessori Society (AMS).

Each classroom has one Montessori-certified head teacher as well as one capable assistant teacher. Some of the primary classrooms have two assistants.

The strong educational backgrounds and substantial classroom experiences of our faculty make them highly trained and knowledgeable in the area of early childhood education. The Montessori School of Cheyenne supports ongoing professional development for all of our staff through internal and external staff training and other educational pursuits.

Lindsey began working at MSC in 2000. One of Lindsey’s favorite things about the Montessori philosophy is the way it allows the youngest of children to be as independent as they want to be. Some children are held back, with the fear of them being too young.  Montessori allows the child to thrive in all of his developments in a prepared environment. Lindsey enjoys yoga and spending time with her husband, two children and two dogs!

Samantha began working at MSC in 2009. Samantha loves the Montessori philosophy because it focuses on the individual child and their potential, the mixed aged groups in one classroom and how the classroom is prepared for the children. Samantha enjoys anything outdoors and spending time with her family, friends and cat.

Karla began working at MSC in 2002.  She loves everything about the Montessori philosophy.  Seeing the pride of the children when they master a task, the awe of the parents when they see what their child is capable of and the freedom the children have to pursue their interests.  Karla has three children, two grown sons and one young daughter.

Becca began working at MSC in 2014 as a substitute teacher. After separating from the Air Force, she found a community in the Montessori philosophy. She graduated with her AMS Montessori training in 2018 from the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. Her favorite thing about the philosophy is that it encourages a love of learning in children. They come to school every day eager to learn more. Becca enjoys fitness and spending time with her husband and daughter outside in beautiful Wyoming. 

Kate began working at MSC in 2008. Kate believes that Montessori children are the best part of Montessori Education. The philosophy builds independent, inquisitive learners that make each day exciting and new! Kate holds her Wyoming State Teaching Certificate, and she is also our Kindergarten teacher.  Kate has a 3 year old black Lab named Kai that keeps her very busy!
