  • CMS Montessori

    Montessori in the 7/8 building is focused on building independent learners and community minded individuals.  We strive to make meaningful connections to the different curricular subjects through themes and cross-curricular learning opportunities.

    We employ a Standards Based Evaluation System, so the focus is on the learning of concepts not the points for completion. Students are evaluated on their understanding of the objectives/standards based on assessments.

    Before working at Chippewa, I obtained my degree in Elementary Education at Michigan State University in 2015. Then, I worked at the Kinawa 5-6 School as a student intern with the 5th grade team of Mrs. Holcomb, Mrs. Long, and Mrs. Mankowski. I began working at Chippewa Middle School on the Montessori team in 2016. I earned my credential for Secondary I-II AMS Montessori Education in 2017. I earned a Masters of Education with a focus in Montessori through Xavier University in 2019.
