Emily has been at VMS since 2017. She has worked in both our toddler and primary classrooms, as well as before and aftercare. Emily comes to us with her masters in Montessori Education, from Loyola University Maryland. Prior to working in education full time, she worked in mental health teaching life skills to adults in both group home and clinical settings. A native to the Pacific Northwest, Emily loves to travel, take her Pomeranian on hikes, and read on rainy days. She also enjoys crafting, sewing, and cooking.
Kristin comes to VMS with Masters Degree in teaching and has been working in education for seven years, with experience ranging from preschool to special needs. She knew from a young age that teaching was her calling in life. Through her interactions with students at VMS, it is easy to tell she has a passion for what she does. When not teaching, Kristin is a busy mom and wife, as well as dog mom to her pup Pickles. Her hobbies include painting, reading, and being active in yoga and dance. She is also an active volunteer, working with children any chance she gets.
