My name is Karla Massey and I have been a classroom teacher here at Erwin for almost 10 years. This year I have been blessed to be able to serve as the school's Montessori Instructional Coach. This position has allowed me to operate in one of my passions. I believe that all children deserve a quality education where students are respected as individuals and are held to high expectations. Maria Montessori said, "The greatest gifts we can give our children are the roots of responsibility and the wings of independence."
I have a Master’s in Education and Human Development from the State University of New York at Brockport and a Bachelor’s from SUNY Fredonia. I completed coursework to become a licensed administrator from UNC Greensboro in 2020 . I have received Montessori training ages (6-9) and (9-12) from CMTE/NC.
"Children display a universal love of mathematics, which is par excellence the science of precision, order, and intelligence." -Maria Montessori
Another passion that I am happy to share with Erwin is my love of mathematics education. I love being able to assist teachers in merging the NC State Standards with Montessori lessons and materials. I look forward to helping Erwin become the model for public Montessori education in Greensboro.
