PreCasa 2 Teachers

 

Mrs. Mehir AzizMrs. Mehir Aziz - Directress

I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Art and Design from the National College of Arts in 2005. I taught O Level Art (University of Cambridge Syndicate) for a few years before moving to Toronto with my husband and daughter. My Journey toward becoming a Montessori Teacher began the day I walked through the door at Northstar Montessori School to enroll my daughter in the Casa program. Even though I was not new to the teaching profession, the Montessori method quickly drew me in. As a parent, I was able to witness the wonderful work the Teachers at Northstar put in to promote independence, and instill a lifelong love of learning in the children.

I took my Casa Training from the Toronto Montessori Institute, and then completed my year-long Practicum. After earning my Diploma, I started work at a Montessori School as a Casa Directress. I love working with children and for this reason I consider teaching to be such a rewarding profession. It is an honour to be a part of this wondrous time in their lives and to witness each child's potential unfold. I am very excited to be a part of the wonderful staff at Northstar Montessori School and look forward to an amazing year in PreCasa 2.

 

Mrs. Paula ReyesMrs. Paula Reyes - Directress

I have been with Northstar Montessori since 2002. I started out as a volunteer and knew that I wanted to be part of this growing family. Since then I have watched many children grow and develop. After so many years in the classroom I have decided to go back to school and enrich myself. I have always loved working with children and that’s one of the big reasons why I wanted to become a teacher. It is satisfying knowing that as a teacher, we help to mold the children of the future. To me, it doesn't feel like a job but more of a privilege to be around young minds. The best part of this job is that every day is full of surprises, new challenges and pure fulfillment. Seeing the faces of the students when they complete a task brings pure joy to my heart. I have been with Northstar for 5 years and every year has been filled with memories that I will never forget. The staff, the school, the students, the parents, and the environment are all a big part of why I'm at Northstar. I feel very lucky to be able to work in such a great facility, it truly feels like home.

I graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at George Brown College in 2014. After I graduated I decided to do the Montessori program at the AMI training school. During my school year at AMI, I felt I needed to have more experience in a Montessori setting and decided to volunteer at different Montessori schools to gain more experience. Then I was given a great opportunity to be an assistant teacher at Northstar Montessori and I jumped at the opportunity. Now I am so excited and honoured to be part of a great school. I am back for my second year of teaching and ready to start a new journey at Northstar in a new classroom, co-teachers and age group.

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
