IMG_9539jessMontessori education is dear to Miss Jess’ heart.  She began her career in Montessori in 2000 while living in her home state of Michigan.  It was during the 4 years at Dearborn Heights Montessori School that she gained invaluable experience working with a diverse population of children ranging in age from 18 months to 15 years.  She received her Early Childhood AMS Certification at the Center for Montessori Teacher Education/NY in 2004.  By way of Baltimore, Jess continued her successful career as a 3-6 directress when she moved to Asheville, NC.  She spent 5 years teaching with the wonderful community of Asheville Montessori School and is happy to share her 12 years of pre-primary (3-6) experience with the students of MESA.

Miss Jess & her husband Shaun have two beautiful children; Amelia & Levi.  In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, watching her children grow and change, crafting, and enjoying all the beauty of Asheville.
