“The teacher, when she begins work in our schools, must have a kind of faith that the child will reveal himself through work.”

Infant Aftercare Lead

B.A., Sociology, with a minor in Education, University of Massachusetts Amherst

Jenna joined Amherst Montessori School in 2018 as the Infant After Care Lead and Classroom Assistant. She has 10 years of experience working with young children as both a babysitter and a nanny. During that time, she found that she really enjoys working with infants and toddlers.

She loves watching children learn, grow, and become more independent in the Montessori environment; and she really values the respect that each child is given. She is excited to be a part of the Amherst Montessori community.

Outside of work Jenna enjoys cooking and baking, gardening, listening to podcasts, and spending time with her husband, Aaron.
