Devyn, a teacher of eight years, spent three years teaching English to junior high school students in Japan via the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program. While living in Gunma prefecture, she fell in love with the mountains there, as it was so different from New Jersey. However, she did miss the ocean dearly, and upon moving back to the U.S. she decided that she needed to live in a place that had access to both hiking and sailing.
Devyn fully believes in the whole-child approach to education that Montessori programs use. She hold certifications in Elementary Education (K-5) and Special Education, received her Montessori training on-site at Living Montessori and is enrolled in continuing education in this field.
She enjoys exploring Washington State and is interested in learning more about the area, so if you have any suggestions about hiking trails, music venues, or restaurants, please feel free to make suggestions!
