About Laurel

Laurel loves working with children and being supportive to their families and feels it is such an honor and a privilege to be a part of the staff at Concord Montessori School! Children quite naturally have a love of learning and exploration; a Montessori education teaches the children how to use these qualities to become enthusiastic participants in their own education. The children are filled with self-confidence as they cultivate their self-care skills, social grace and kindnesses, art and music expression, and lay an incredible foundation for mathematics and language skills that will benefit them their whole lives.
