Martha joined King’s Town School the year it opened in 2004 as a Montessori Directress. A native of Kingston, Martha attended Queen’s University and then went on to do her Montessori training at The Foundation for Montessori Education in Toronto. Under the tutelage of Renilde Montessori, granddaughter of Maria Montessori, Martha graduated from the program in 1992. Martha has been teaching the Montessori philosophy ever since. She believes that focusing on the individual needs of the child and guiding them through the magnificent Montessori materials will result in giving each child an excellent foundation of learning and discovery.
Martha is also Vice Principal at KTS and enjoys working alongside Principal Garwood and the extraordinary teaching and administrative staff. Martha and her husband are now empty nesters as their daughter is now a student at McGill. When Martha is not home with her husband and energetic dog, she enjoys travelling, exercising, spending time at her cottage, and cooking.
