Teachers are the most important factor in student achievement. All of our full time teachers are American Montessori Society certified or working towards Montessori certification. All our teachers have at least one bachelor’s degree with most having at least one master’s degree and many holding a PhD. CMS is an AMS affiliate school, and is working towards full AMS Accreditation. We are proud of the cultural and geographic diversity of our teaching staff, which brings us a truly global educational environment. Our average student-teacher ratio is 11 to 1.
The latest changes to our staff include Keisha Beasley, Ph.D., who is joining us as an Elementary Teacher for 4th grade, and who will also teach science for Elementary and our new coding, computers, and robots program. Anne-Valerie Brittan, Ph.D., a French native and director of our music and language programs, has started her Montessori training towards becoming an Elementary Lead Teacher. Carrie Beck, a certified Montessori teacher with a Master’s Degree in Montessori education, is joining us as a Primary teacher, and our two new assistants are Ellie Carlin and Kayla Peck. We are proud to see our outstanding staff continue to develop their classrooms.
