Curt Gottfried is the guide in the Cloud Room, and has been with our school since 2004. A Florida Native, Curt found his true home in the Pacific Northwest where he moved after completing his university degree. Following 15 years owning and managing several small businesses, he discovered the Montessori method of education. Soon after, he trained to be a primary guide and launched his new and rewarding teaching career. His kind, even-keeled nature helps children develop a sense of ease and confidence in his classroom so they feel free to explore and learn.
Curt received his AMI certification as a primary guide through the Montessori Institute Northwest (MINW) in 2004. He earned a BA in political science from the University of Florida.
