“The greatest sign of success for a teacher… is to be able to say, ‘The children are now working as if I did not exist.” Maria Montessori

Miss Amie’s journey to Montessori Education unfolded after spending summers in college volunteering in the Calvary toddler program where her mother, Miss Karen worked as a teacher’s assistant. In college Amie worked as a group leader at the Wailupe Valley Elementary School A-Plus after school program teaching, sports, games, music, and art. In January 2000 she also started substitute teaching at Calvary by the Sea Montessori School. That Fall Miss.  Amie worked as a teacher’s assistant in a pre-kindergarten classroom.

In her free time Miss Amie enjoys playing the ukulele, guitar, mandolin, autoharp, clarinet, cavaquinho, recorders, and melodica. Some of her favorite genres of music are praise and worship, Hawaiian, slack key guitar, and classical guitar. She also enjoys running, riding her bike, fishing, and kite flying. Perhaps you will see her going down the highway running, riding her bike or carrying her fishing pole. Miss. Amie enjoys bringing her passions for music, fitness, sports, fishing, and kite flying into the classroom. It is her honor to share and model all that she has learned with the keiki at Calvary. This can be summed up best in the words of Maria Montessori, “Stir up life but leave it free to develop!”
