Tiffany is a 6-9 Montessori teacher committed to social justice and peace education. She is trained through the Center for Montessori Education CMTE|NY and has taught at the Montessori School of Northampton for almost twelve years.
Tiffany is dedicated to empowering her students to trust themselves and to respect their diverse capabilities. She has created a curriculum aligned with the Montessori philosophy that addresses social inequity through the lenses of race, class, immigration, and gender. She conducts an annual Peacemakers Workshop in her classroom where students are able to discover their inner peace, learn to resolve conflicts and are introduced to people who have worked for peace across the world. Her recently created workshop, Reconnecting Our Classroom Community, provides a safe and nurturing environment for elementary age students to further their cosmic education through exploring identity and self within their communities.
When not teaching, she enjoys spending as much time as possible with her five and a half-year-old son, (who loves being a Montessori Kid),toddler Stokely, and her partner, Clayton!
Please be in touch! I’d love to hear about how you are building a socially just community in your Montessori classroom and school and can answer any questions you may have.
