Ms. Marlou Salazar, Lead Pre-k/Kindergarten Teacher

Hi, my name is Marlou Salazar and I am the pre-k/kindergarten teacher.  I have over 20 years teaching experience in both pre-school and primary Montessori environments.  I obtained my Montessori Diploma in 1994 and hold a Bachelors Degree of Elementary Education from the Philippines.  I believe that children learn through hands-on experiences, investigation and research.  I find joy in seeing children develop self-discipline and internal sense of purpose and motivation.
