Ms. Fran is the guide in our Honeysuckle classroom. She gained her Montessori credentials from Montessori NW in 2015 in Assistants to Infancy. In addition to her Montessori credentials, she also has an Associates degree from Portland Community College. She enjoys the youngest children so much! Their wonder and drive for the simplest things in life is always enlightening to her soul. Children bring such joy in to her life and she feels beyond blessed to get to spend her days with yours. When Fran is not at VMS, she enjoys spending quality time with her family, camping, hiking, and exploring. Being outdoors with her family is one of the things she loves most.
