kid_with_doll_smHello!  My name is Mary Landis and I am a certified AMI montessori teacher.  I honestly can’t remember ever wanting to do anything else but teach young children.  After getting my bachelor’s degree in psychology   from the University of Oregon, I went on to the  Montessori teacher training in Portland, Oregon.  I have been a lead teacher for nearly 20 years, primarily in a local Montessori preschool.  I have 3 grown sons and a daughter in high school which definitely round out my experience with children!!  I am now in the perfect position to be starting my own program.  I am a seasoned teacher who is full of ideas and a deep reservoir of knowledge.  I do not have the responsibilities of juggling career and a young family these days so I can devote myself to creating the preschool environment I’ve always dreamed of.  I look forward to giving you a tour and offering  a wonderful preschool experience for you and your child.
