Greetings! My name is Melissa Green - Montessori teacher in Class 1404.
I graduated from Hamline University with a B.A. in Psychology and Elementary Education. Upon graduation I received my Montessori training at the College of St. Catherine for the Elementary 1 classroom (grades 1 - 3) as well as at Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center in Illinois where I became certified. I am currently working on my Masters degree in Natural Science and Environmental Education at Hamline's Global Center for Environmental Education. This is my 11th year leading this class.
Our class has an equal balance of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students. We are dedicated to the Montessori curriculum - Math, Geometry, Language, Music, Zoology, Botany, and Cultural Studies (Geography, History, & Social Studies).
We also work on developing the personal as well as social spirit in our community. We strive to be independent, thoughtful, and peaceful learners.
