HEAD OF SCHOOL
For more than two decades, Desiree has been dedicated to helping shape young minds. In her 20+ years as an educator, she has learned as much as she has taught, realizing that no two students are the same; education is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor. She understands that formal teaching methods don’t always work for every child, and development begins by stoking the embers of curiosity. Desiree believes non-traditional learning approaches, such as the Montessori method with self-directed activities, hands-on learning and collaborative experiences tailored to the individual’s needs, create a well-rounded education. In late 2019, she left the classroom and used her education experience to begin tutoring and homeschooling preschool and elementary-aged children. She then went on to found MindSprout Montessori in 2021. Desiree holds a Masters in Education, and is certified in EC-6th, gifted and talented education, English as a second language, and has undergone extensive Montessori training.
Helping Minds Grow
There isn’t one simple solution to reaching young minds. It takes a personal approach to spark a lifelong desire to learn. MindSprout Montessori understands there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all model for helping young children grow and develop a genuine passion for learning. We approach every student as an individual, and we develop lesson plans that cater to their learning style. We provide our students and their parents the tools to blossom and grow intellectually. Through tailored lesson plans and personal attention, we plant the seeds that sprout into a lifelong passion for learning.
