My name is Katrina Reinhardt and I am the teacher/guide in the Humboldt classroom, joining the HDMS family just recently, in August of 2016. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Art History from the University of Santa Cruz in 2000. After my daughter was born I decided to study child development and once I completed my required early childhood education units, I was lucky enough to get hired as an assistant teacher at a Montessori school in Felton California. It was there that I fell in love with the Montessori method and I began taking the teachers training program. In 2011 I recieved my Montessori Certification and Credential. I went on to become a head teacher in Milpitas California. I became a director of a Montessori preschool in Sunnyvale, and then took another Director's position in a Montessori school in Cupertino. I decided that I wanted to teach again, so when I got the position here at High Desert Montessori school, my daughter, Shanti and I moved to Truckee.
I currently live in Truckee, Ca with my daughter Shanti.
On weekends you can find me hiking with my family, taking yoga classes, skiing, painting, cooking, or taking rode trips in our VW bus.
