Dear Kindergarten community,

We would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 Kindergarten community at Great Work Montessori school! We are your Kindergarten teaching team! Amanda has been teaching Elementary age children for 9 years and loves the sense of discovery and wonder that children have. Rachel is new to our school community having relocated from New York. She has taught and is trained at both Toddler (YCC) and Primary levels. We both love outdoor activities and are excited to work together using our combined knowledge, experience, and interests!

Children of this age crave independence. They are also beginning to desire more social interaction with their peers. To adapt to the unusual circumstances we are experiencing, we will make the most of the technological resources we have available to facilitate these natural inclinations. We will be teaching as a team to support your child in his or her learning. We are committed to our core Montessori values and making meaningful connections with your child. We look forward to guiding your child in exploring the complexities of mathematics, language, science, geography, art, and music. We are excited to meet you in person and help support your family.

You will find our request for school supplies to be used at home and in school on the Supply List page of our class website. Additionally, if your child is attending school in-person, please make sure he or she arrives on the first day with:

1.  A non-glass, dishwasher-safe water bottle—Please make sure this is labeled with your child’s first name in permanent marker.
2.  A labeled gallon-size plastic storage bag with 1 complete weather appropriate outfit (in case of a mishap or mess - each item also labeled with your child’s name).
3.  A non-rolling, washable backpack
4.  A healthy lunch in an insulated lunch box with utensils. Please review the GWMS Food Policy.

If you have any questions, we can be reached at We look forward to getting to know your child and collaborating with you during this unique school year.

Amanda and Rachel
