Emmy (she/her) has been the lead guide in the Lavender classroom since 2014. Before joining Puddletown as the assistant in the Lavender classroom in 2011, she worked in varied environments caring for children, including day care, day camp and nanny work. She received a BA in Psychology from University of Hartford. Once arriving in Portland from the east coast, she received her AMI diploma from Montessori Northwest in Primary Education. Emmy is committed to the essence of the Montessori method and believes in the marvel of the true nature of the child. She spends her free time cooking, walking, knitting and sewing, hanging out with her dog Louis and has a newly sparked interest in maintaining an edible garden in her backyard.
