Children’s House Teacher
Hi, I’m Miss Karla! I love working with children and helping them to become lifelong learners. My passion for education started way back in Junior High when I started directing my first shows in 4H. I went on to earn a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. Later, I received my Montessori training through the North American Montessori Center (NAMC) for ages 3 to 6. Through my studies and teaching experience, I fell in love with the method and got certified to be a Montessori guide.
Over the years, I have taught all ages from Toddler to Senior High in a variety of classroom settings in both public and private schools. People often ask me what age I like best. My answer: I just love working with children at any age. In addition to my classroom teaching, I am also the Elementary Music teacher here at MRA and I maintain a private Piano and Voice studio in my home and at school, which I enjoy very much.
