Assistant & After School Teacher, Preschool
Joanna began working with children in 2008 and joined the Living Montessori team in 2018. Joanna holds a Bachelor’s degree in Italian and Women’s Studies from Vassar College and spent a semester in Italy studying at the University of Bologna. She entered the field of Early Education due to her love of learning and hopes to inspire that same love of learning in the children she works with. Prior to joining Living Montessori, Joanna spent a year teaching English to high school students in Italy and spent four years working in childcare centers.
Originally from Poughkeepsie, New York, Joanna moved to the Seattle area just before joining Living Montessori. Joanna has a twin sister, who lives in Connecticut teaching Spanish. In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, reading and exploring new cities. If Joanna could meet any historical figure, alive or dead, she would choose Madame Tussaud.
