Dr. Maria Montessori

She holds a Master of Science in Exceptional Student Education, a Master’s Degree in Business Education, a Bachelor’s in Special Education, as well as a Montessori Teacher Certification in early childhood. She has over 20 years of teaching experience and has been in the Montessori field for 10 years. It is her great passion to work with children with special needs and loves being a Montessori Teacher! Since completing her Montessori training she has fallen in love with the method and, with her background in special needs, she is convinced that the Montessori method is the best way for children to learn.
More and more schools are experiencing an increase in enrollment of students with special needs.
The Montessori Method is wonderfully suited for children with exceptionalities, but many Montessori guides struggle to understand and meet the needs of challenging children while peacefully including these children in a normalized classroom.
Maria Eva creates Challenging Children and Montessori to help future generations flourish. Her mission is to support the Montessori community by providing professional development and consultative services to educators and organizations in order to best meet the needs of every student; challenges and all.
