A child's preschool teacher can make a lasting impact on that child's future. 

All faculty at MLK Montessori School are highly trained and experienced with childhood education. The majority hold college degrees. Each Classroom Lead Teacher is Montessori trained at the preschool age level.  All faculty participate regularly in professional development.

My name is Ms. Stacey. I would like to welcome you to my classroom, Room 103. I have been teaching since 1993. Before joining the MLK Montessori staff, I taught half-day preschool and was the supervisor at a local daycare center, so I have had the opportunity to work with a wide range of children, from infants to elementary students. At MLK Montessori, my wonderful co-teacher, Ms. Angela, and I provide students with a loving Montessori learning environment that is both fun and focused on school-readiness. I feel blessed to be able to continue to pursue my passion: serving children. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, mother-in-law, and daughter (a Valparaiso University graduate); scrapbooking; card making; and reading.

My name is Ms. Susan. I am a teacher in room 103. I am the mother of 2 daughters. I have my early childhood and Elementary teaching license. During my teaching career, I have taught preschool, kindergarten, and Elementary school. I was also the director of a preschool for 2 years. I prefer being in the classroom with the children. I am inspired by the children's love of learning. I also enjoy traveling, hiking, gardening, and reading. I believe the Montessori Method used at MLK  school allows each student to explore learning and rise to his or her potential as a student and as a citizen of a community.

My name is Mrs. Tonia. I am the teacher float. I have been passionate about caring for children since I was very young. I have worked in the childcare field – for Fort Wayne Community Schools and Church Ministries – since the mid-1990s. I’ve even operated my own in-home daycare. I love that my students feel safe and comfortable and are able to express themselves when they are with me. As a mentor, an educator, and a parent and grandparent, I feel that my purpose is to work with children in the community. I hope to continue this for many years to come.
