Mrs. Ivy GamaMrs. Ivy Gama - Directress

I am a graduate from the University of Goa, India, with a Bachelor's degree in Philosophy and History. I began tutoring, when I was in High School and it was then that I realized I have a passion for teaching and pursued on with my career. I further obtained a Bachelor's Degree of Education in History and Geography. I began my teaching career and have 13 years of teaching experience at the Elementary Level. I enjoyed this experience as I was able to cater to the full development of the children.

Upon coming to Canada 2 years ago, I had the opportunity to observe children at work in a Montessori school and I was impressed on seeing them work independently at the age of two and a half. This drew me to the Montessori way of teaching. I recently completed my Montessori Training in the year 2014, at TMI, and earned the diploma to teach children from the age of two and half to six years.

I look forward to having a fruitful teaching experience in Northstar Montessori, a well reputed organization, and being able to be a role model to the children who are under my care.


Mrs. Theresa MillerMrs. Theresa Miller - Directress

I am a mother of four and I have enjoyed life in the Montessori world since 2005. 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 co-teacher in Pre-Casa 1.


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.

Mrs. Lauren Pitre - Assistant

I graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at Sheridan College in 2004. Since then, I have had many opportunities to gain experience in many different settings and organizations, such as providing personal support for individuals with Autism, Youth Center Supervisor for the Military Family Resource Center in Trenton, Ontario, as well as being an Assistant Supervisor at a Daycare. I chose to work in the education field as I wanted to work with children and become a positive influence in their lives. I have the opportunity to be a role model and share their successes as well as their struggles. Witnessing a child develop a new skill is very rewarding. Working at Northstar has been truly an amazing experience thus far. The families, staff and students have made me feel extremely comfortable and welcome!

What Other People Said...

"Northstar has been a great school for both our children, Jerica and Nathaniel. As I write this message, we have been at Northstar for over five years. Having been exposed to other Montessori Schools, Northstar in our experience is by far the best Monstessori School in the Mississauga area. The program offers a good balance of academics, practical learning, extra-curricluar, field visits and core values. We wish Northstar the very best as it strives to deliver excellence toward shaping the future!" - Glem & Vinitha
