Greetings and welcome to the new LiMai Montessori Academy.
As your new director, I am excited for 2018 which will be a full year of learning in a loving and caring environment. I was also a Montessori student and I have been teaching within the Montessori curriculum for 25 years. Furthermore, our prior director, Mrs. Anne, hired me and was instrumental in my development as a teacher within the Montessori program.
I graduated from Mission Viejo High School in 1990. I was influenced by my aunt who was a Montessori teacher for several years and with this influence it inspired me to teach. I secured my Montessori teaching certificate and earned an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education.
With my extensive experience teaching the Montessori program, it will enable me to lead, teach and direct our teachers. We will create a positive atmosphere for learning and having fun with your child’s classmates. I would like to thank you for entrusting your child with us. Our goal is to provide your child with a positive learning experience which will prepare them for continuing education as your child develops thru a positive learning experience.
My name is Mrs. Huyen and I am a teacher in the Rousseau Class. I have more than a decade of experience at LiMai Montessori Academy- RSM and I cannot wait to share my knowledge with you. I began working with toddlers here in 2002 after many years of being primarily a stay-at-home wife and mother of four. I enjoyed my first year of teaching so much that I decided to take classes in Laguna Beach and complete official training through the International Association of Progressive Montessori. I earned full certification to teach children between the ages of 2 ½ and 6. I have been married to my husband since 1988 and we have raised four wonderful children. Our three daughters have already graduated from UCLA, Berkeley and UC Davis. Our youngest son has just completed his first year of Business Honor Program at Mercy College in New Yok. Actually, he attended our Montessori classes in his early years, then a local elementary school and Mission Viejo HS with four years in Water Polo and Swimming, earning Scholar Athlete Honors and Varsity Letters in both sports. How I miss them all so much! I am truly fascinated by my works with children. Every day, I love seeing students just like you developing and growing-up in my classroom. I have so many Montessori skills and lessons to teach you and so many fun things to share with you as you take your first steps of your wonderful educational journey.
My name is Laura Nuflo and I am very excited to begin this school year surrounded by your children. Working with kids is my passion. I have been in the early childhood education field for years. While I was living in Peru, I began a practical internship in early education, this endeavor allowed me to work with low income families in Peru. After receiving my degree in early education, I worked for a television studio as a live television teacher. LiMai Montessori Academy formally RSM Montessori has been my home for 24 years. My favorite color is orange. I encourage recycling as well healthy food in my family. My goal for this class is to help your child learn to do things by themselves. This will happen through daily Montessori exercises such as pouring, scrubbing, sewing, practicing grace and courtesy and many other practical lessons. These activities alone with our other Montessori materials will contribute to the control and coordination of movement, development of concentration and enrichment of self-control. These activities will ultimately help your child integrate in social groups and allow them to reach their highest potential. I would like to welcome you and your child to the 2018-2019 school year. I invite you to observe our class at any time and call me with any questions, concerns or suggestions you may have. I am confident that the students will have an enriching, satisfying and rewarding experience in my class. Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your child’s early years.
