This multi-age tuition-free Montessori Magnet Program is in partnership with Go Like the Wind Montessori School and is open to children in kindergarten through third grade. Children in kindergarten learn in a primary class with ages 3-6. Children in grades first through third learn together. All students have the opportunity to learn in a diverse, caring, calm, Montessori-centered learning community. The core curriculum areas of practical life, sensorial, language, math, geography, and science are represented in the classroom. Similar to our traditional public school approach focused on personalized education, Montessori teaching meets a child where they are at and allows them to create a unique path to help them grow as a whole child.
All students, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks. In addition, we have implemented additional COVID-19 Mitigation Strategies including:
● Requiring those who are symptomatic to stay home.
● Emphasizing the use of hand sanitizer and hygiene products.
● Maintaining high ventilation rates in all spaces.
● Changing air filtration frequently.
● Maintaining custodial protocols similar to those used last year.
● Cohort classes
● Limiting guests and events with high volumes of people in small spaces.
● Adhering to all WCHD recommendations and requirements for contact tracing
Hello, my name is Susie Cho. I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. After attaining my undergraduate degree in elementary education, I moved halfway around the world and taught students of all ages and experiences. It was an adventurous time where I got to meet people from different cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds.
As I learned more about myself and the world, I began to realize that every person is born with the fullest potential and that each individual is unique and extraordinary. That is how I started my journey in the Montessori Method. I came back to Chicago and completed the Early Childhood Credential (3-6-year-old program) through the American Montessori Society. I have been a Montessori guide in the classroom, as well as in all areas of my life.
Being in Michigan for the past 7 years, I am living my best life with my loving husband and 2 sons. One of our family’s favorite activities is to have a dance party in the living room right before bedtime. That’s the way we roll!
