y name is Chrissy Quintieri and I am a primary teacher in the Tuscarora Classroom. I have a B.A. in environmental science and ecology and a Master’s degree in education. I earned my Montessori primary diploma from Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) in 2012. I have been a part of the High Desert Montessori community for over 10 years now. I love working with children; each day is different and new. I enjoy seeing each child reach his or her true potential through the Montessori curriculum. When I am not in the classroom, I like to spend as much time as possible with my family. During the winter all of our free time is spent on the mountain snowboarding. When the weather is warmer, I like running and organic gardening.
