Mary (Miss Mary) grew up in Alexandria, Minnesota, and is the youngest of seven siblings. Through nannying for friends and attending Catechesis of the Good Shepherd training in highschool, Mary decided that she wanted to take the path of early education with the hope of working in a Montessori environment and atrium. She attended Alexandria College and received her Associates of Science in Early Childhood Education in May in 2021. She then completed the Early Childhood Program from North America Montessori Center in June of 2021. After graduation, Mary joined the team at SJB for the summer program, but left to join a start-up Montessori school in Fargo, ND. Mary spent 2 years at St. Monica’s Montessori as an assistant in Children’s House. Mary is very excited to return to St. John’s and join the team!
