"SHMA is like my second home with all the wonderful friends and families I have made over the years. The most difficult part of my job is when the children and their families move on after three years. It’s a bitter-sweet time!"
"I love, love, love SHMA! From 1995 to 2008, I worked with the preprimary children and continue to have the privilege to interact with the children and families of SHMA as the Office Manager."

"I have loved being part of this community through my daughter’s years here, and now I get to see the delight on my granddaughter’s face. My favorite subject to teach is my middle school math group and to help them discover how much fun math is."
Associate Head of School
"I have been involved in almost every aspect of SHMA, from teaching to directing musicals. Currently, I am happy to serve this community as an administrator. In my opinion, SHMA is truly the happiest place on Earth."
"I am just a big kid at heart! I enjoy helping students advance their athletic skills when they are young and as they grow. I hope to leave my students with the impression that exercising is fun."

"I am honored to be a part of the Safety Harbor Montessori Academy community and feel that it is a gift to support the process of raising and educating children via Montessori principles! I have a background in both Psychology & Education as well as Natural health & healing, and I love that SHMA seems to integrate so much of what I value for this world and for the next generation."
