Sandy Deiter has worked as an classroom assistant in our school for the last 18 years. Formerly, she used her pre-nursing certification from Mt. Hood Community College to work with medically fragile children at the Providence Child Center. It was while working there that she learned about the Montessori method of education and the Providence Montessori School (now The Portland Montessori School).
She received her training from the Montessori Institute Northwest (MINW) and is AMI certified as a teacher assistant. Her daughter, now 17 years old, attended our school, and has shown Sandy how a Montessori education offers children the tools they need to successfully navigate their way to young adulthood.
