Originally from England, Kirsty moved to Spain with her family to complete her high school education. She received her Bachelors of Art in Childhood and Youth Studies from Exeter University in England. Kirsty’s siblings and her had all attended Montessori schools as children, so she grew up knowing a little bit about it. During her last two years of University she had the opportunity to visit many different Montessori schools as part of her dissertation around the south of England. Kirsty had such a wonderful experience observing in all these communities that it eventually led her to take the leap to Atlanta where she took her training and also received her Masters in Montessori Education. Kirsty is now entering her fourth year with DMA and her third year as a lead guide – it has been a lovely experience and she has learned so much!
