PRIMARY – MI CASITA
Ellie was born in Massachusetts and graduated with a BA in Studio art (printmaking) and a double minor in Education and Geology in 2020. Her experience in the Montessori community began in Mi Casita in 2020. She then completed a year at Montessori Island School in Livingston before moving back to Bozeman and MCM. She has also worked with small children as an older sibling, in aftercare programs and as an assistant in a court mandated family support course. Ellie plans to complete her Montessori lead teacher training in 2023.
Ellie is a lifelong learner. Her liberal arts education has always allowed her to be curious about many subject areas and working in a Montessori preschool environment is the perfect way for her to share her love of many different areas of learning. She particularly enjoys helping children learn about the environment, art and how to navigate their emotions. Ellie is also working to further diversity, equity, and inclusion at Middle Creek.
When she’s not at Middle Creek Ellie enjoys making art, adventuring with friends, fly fishing and cooking. She is also fluent in French.
