I'm Lesley Morris and this is my fith year teaching upper elementary (9-12) in the Golden Gate classroom. I'm also a parent to a CMP student, second grader Beatrix, as well as two older girls, Melanie and Hazel. Prior to teaching at CMP, I was a teacher at another Montessori charter and a Montessori prior school, working with the 6-9 age group for many years.
I have a Bachelor's in Theater Arts from UC Santa Cruz, a California State Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University, a Master's of Education from Walden University, and my Montessori Certificate from Loyola University. In 2007, my husband and I sold our home and moved to Maryland with our children so that I could obtain my training from the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI.)
I'm delighted to be working at California Montessori Project. CMP has an amazing faculty and staff, a wonderful parent community, and great kids!
