Annelise Knitter - Lead Guide
I first stumbled upon Montessori after finishing my Masters of Science in the Psychology of Individual Differences. I began to search for a way to combine my experience in research with my passion for tutoring and teaching. The more I learned about the Montessori method of individualized education and discovery based learning, the more I wanted to be a part of it.
For the past two years, I have lived in Idaho and taught in a Lower Elementary Montessori classroom. I love the creative questions that students surprise me with and sharing in the joy of discovery. As a teacher, I am excited to have the opportunity to continue helping students develop a lifelong love of learning.
During my undergraduate and graduate degrees, I lived in Scotland and studied at the University of St Andrews and University of Edinburgh. I returned to the west coast of the United States to be nearer to my family. My three sisters and I are incredibly close.
I love the outdoors and experiencing nature. I am thrilled to be moving to the Wasatch Range to live and work in such a beautiful, peaceful environment.
