“Education is a natural process carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words, but by experiences in the environment.”
Maria Montessori


Gladwyne Montessori is lead by a group of passionate and highly experienced individuals. The school's Board of Trustees, in partnership with the senior administration on staff, work in lock step to maintain and enhance the exceptional educational experience being offered to the children at Gladwyne Montessori. 

Senior Administration


Board of Trustees

Welcome to Gladwyne Montessori, a vibrant learning community guided by progressive Montessori philosophy and practice and focused on the development of the individual.

It is a great privilege to preside over the Board of Trustees and I am proud to serve with a talented group of people who bring a variety of skills and dedicate an enormous amount of time to the advancement of our school. The Board meets regularly during the year to establish and monitor school policies, oversee general operations and execute on strategic initiatives.

The prospect to solidify Gladwyne Montessori’s identity as an innovative leader in Montessori education not only in this region, but also across the country, is incredibly energizing. As we continue in our sixth decade, we look forward to introducing more families to our remarkable community of learning and the potential their children can unlock in our classrooms. Having the unprecedented opportunity to usher our exceptional school into its “adulthood” is a privilege.

If you have any questions regarding the Board and its activities, please don't hesitate to contact me.
