Cheryl is an AMS certified Early Childhood and Elementary Montessori teacher, holds IMC certification in advanced elementary Montessori education. Cheryl loves to create things, especially baking, sewing, and crafts. She also loves spending time with her family.
Most people think of Montessori Practical Life as scooping and pouring in the Early Childhood years but as Maria Montessori said, “Education should not just be preparation for university, it should be preparation for life.” Cheryl Allen will guide us through activities and ideas for Practical Life during the elementary and adolescent years.
