Casa 3 Teachers

 

Mrs. Angel ScottMrs. Angel Scott - Directress

I attended a Liberal Studies program at Seneca College in 1997 and graduated with high honours. In 2002 I graduated from York University with a degree, both in English and History before I attended Sheridan College, where I received my Montessori Early Childhood Teacher Education program certification and was a Sheridan Scholar. Upon completion of my 1 year internship at Tall Pines School in Brampton I was blessed to begin my career at Northstar in September 2003.

I have two mature children who were my inspiration for becoming a teacher. I choose to be a Montessori teacher because of my love for children and desire to help all children reach their greatest potential. I believe the Montessori method provides me the best opportunity to accomplish that goal. I am at Northstar because it is an incredible school that is culturally diverse where everyone’s differences are celebrated rather than merely acknowledged. It is truly a unique and wonderful community.

 

Ms. Kim Small - Directress

I was born in Durban, South Africa before moving to Canada with my family. I attended the University of Guelph where I received a Bachelor of Commerce degree with a major in Marketing Management, however my passion for children led me to learn and fall in love with the Montessori philosophy. I went on to attend the Foundation for Montessori Education in Toronto and earned my Montessori AMI diploma in Primary education. I have two years of teaching experience in a classroom, and am so looking forward to many years here at Northstar.

 

Ms. Tanya Resendes - Assistant

I am an Early Child Care Assistant, graduate of Everest College class of 2008. I have gained experience in working with children of various age groups by working at a child care centre for 5 years. I greatly enjoy working with children and being part of a team. I am excited to be working in the Casa 3 classroom and looking forward to meeting all of the students and parents. May this be the first of many memorable years to come.

What Other People Said...

"My daughter has been at Northstar since she was 2 years old and started in the Toddler Program. She is now in the final year of the Casa Program and my son has taken her place in the Toddler Room. I can’t say enough about how Northstar has gone above and beyond to ensure their success. The school takes an individual approach to each student, recognizing that each child learns in their own way and at their own pace. My daughter has excelled in this non competitive environment and is outperforming her circle of peers who are older than her in the public system. She has a love for learning and truly enjoys working with the Montessori materials. The Casa Program does a great job of ensuring that the students really understand what they are learning. The Toddler and Pre Casa Programs are both nurturing and educational and truly set the stage for learning at the higher levels. My son at just a year and a half has shown great independence as well as the ability to follow direction and play well in a group setting. The school has done a great job of balancing both the social and academic needs of the child which in my opinion is key to their success." - Shelley
