Juanita Bay Montessori School to Close in June 2021

After a lot of thought and consideration of circumstances, I have decided that the 2020-2021 school year will be my last. I am retiring and Juanita Bay Montessori will close in June 2021.


It is with great sadness that I will say goodbye to a career working with young children that dates back to 1981. I also deeply regret the chance to take some of my current preschoolers all the way up to their kindergarten year, as well as the chance to welcome the younger siblings of the families I hold so near and dear to my heart.


I thank you all for the chance to be a part of your children’s lives, and for the deep impact they have had on mine.  I will cherish each and every school day that I have remaining.  Thank you so much for all that you do as parents of these amazing young people.
