“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


2021-22 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 child.

It is a great privilege to chair the Gladwyne Montessori 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 has a strategic and fiduciary responsibility and meets during the year on topics that span policy development and administration, operations, institutional advancement, and strategic growth.

Gladwyne Montessori has been an innovative leader in Montessori education for decades. Our past students and alumni have credited the school for fostering a "lifelong learning" philosophy as tantamount to their ability to tackle the opportunities and challenges that they have come across, personally and professionally. We look forward to introducing more families to our remarkable community of learning and the potential their children can unlock in our classrooms. It has been a privilege to be a part of the community for the past 10+ years. I am deeply honored to partner with my colleagues on the Board, the outstanding faculty and administration, and all of our families to continue to raise the bar on Montessori education in the region and across the country.

If you have any questions regarding the Board of Trustees, its objectives, and its activities, please feel free to contact me anytime.
