Mrs. Renee StewartMrs. Renee Stewart - Directress

I am a proud mother of two boys and have always had a love for young children. I graduated from the University of Windsor with a B.A. in Sociology. After graduating from university and working many years with the provincial government, I decided to follow my dream and become a teacher. In 2005, I joined the Early Childhood Montessori Program at Sheridan College. I did my placement at a Montessori school in Brampton, was hired after graduation and worked there for eight years. I am happy to be back at Northstar Montessori and look forward to another exciting year.


Mrs. Nhi Ly CummingsMrs. Nhi Ly Cummings - Directress

I knew I wanted to work with children from the moment I stepped into one of my younger siblings' classroom as a volunteer. Teaching was an option but I also thought about child psychology or social work. Throughout high school and university, I continued to volunteer in classrooms and at church. I also tutored ESL and managed a tutoring centre for a couple of years. After graduating from York University, I decided that all the experiences I gained, I wanted to pursue teaching. I attempted to go down the public school road but by chance, I discovered the Montessori Program at Sheridan College. As I learned more about the program, I was intrigued by this unique approach to education. I did my practicum here at Northstar Montessori and graduated from the program in 2007. I am glad to have studied the program as I have learned a greater amount of knowledge in educating children. I hope to contribute in creating a peaceful community for everyone by aiding today's young children to become tomorrow's problem solvers. I am glad to be back at Northstar and look forward to many memorable moments.

I have graduated from Montessori Teacher's College but I have a professional background which includes Physical Education Specialist, Special Needs Educator, as well as a Casa Assistant. I am delighted to join the Northstar team as a Casa 2 co-teacher.


Ms. Raisah KhamisMs. Raisah Khamis - Assistant

I graduated from the Early Childhood Education program from Sheridan college in 2015.

Before completing my ECE, I was an assistant for five years and worked with various age groups from toddlers to school-aged children, mostly in a Montessori setting. I always enjoy working with children and appreciate their company. I hope to continue on my education working with children by completing my Montessori teaching certificate. I am very excited to join the Northstar team and being a part of the Casa classrooms.

I look forward to working with the friendly staff, parents and students.

What Other People Said...

"Northstar Montessori is more than a school, it is a family. Our children have been with Northstar for nine years and not only are they being taught a higher level of education, but they are learning in a nourishing environment filled with love and care. The staff is very friendly, approachable, and co-operative with parents to better fulfill the needs of each child. We are truly pleased with the quality of our children's education, but even more so with how happy they are at school and with the wonderful individuals they are becoming because of it." - N. De Jesus
