faculty & staff

The staff of The Cobb School, Montessori is a close-knit community of like-minded adults who are committed to providing the very best education for their students.  They are passionate about Montessori, and they believe in children.  Each staff member carries out the school's mission -- Believe, Guide, Step Aside, Let Fly! -- and personifies the school's core values -- Respect, Responsibility, Independence, and Intergrity.  

All Lead Teachers have been Montessori trained.  There is one teacher and one assistant in each of the Toddler, Primary, and Lower Elementary classes, and there are two trained Montessori teachers and one assistant/science teacher guiding the Upper Elementary Program.  Our Elementary curriculum is enriched by specials, including Art, Music, Gym, Spanish and Latin.  The faculty members who teach these subjects are experienced and dedicated experts. Our after-school program, The Nest, is run by a Montessori-trained teacher, and our before-school care, The Early Bird Program, is directed by a caring and responsible educator.

All Cobb School employees are dedicated to meeting the needs of the children and families in our community.
