Ms. Priya lives with her husband and a son who is a junior in high school. She moved to the United States in 2002, and her son began his early childhood education in a Montessori setting. As a frequent volunteer at her son’s school, she discovered the value of Montessori education as well as her passion for early childhood education. In 2009, she began working in early childhood and joined a Montessori school. She also believes the mixed age groups in the Montessori setting are where authentic learning takes place. She loves being able to teach children something new and exciting every day.​

Over the last decade, she has taught in various Montessori settings before fulfilling her dreams of opening a school of her own. Miss Priya’s favorite things about teaching Montessori are helping children to become independent learners and guiding children to be peaceful leaders in their communities. She has designed a program that gives children the skills to solve conflicts peacefully, care for themselves and their environment, and become responsible global citizens.
