"My name is Susana Williams. I was born and raised in Mexico. My native language is Spanish, but I've been fluent in English for over 15 years. I love my heritage and language and have taught Spanish to students side-by-side with the Montessori method. I am a Certified Montessori Teacher with the American Montessori Society. I am also a mother of 4 amazing children (Marianna, Cheyenna, Alexander, & Troy), but also a happy "abuelita" (granny) to my granddaughter Tori. After 20 years of experience in Early Childhood, my goal is to bring children into close contact with God's creations, loving and caring for plants, animals and neighbors, daily loving guidance to become Joyful (happy people all the time), Gracious (respectful, polite and caring) and most importantly Kind (learning to be good to others including animals,plants etc,)."

What is Montessori?
Dr. Maria Montessori (the founder of the Montessori approach to education, born in Italy in 1870) observed that babies and young children learn using purposeful movement, exploration, and discovery. Maria Montessori believed that the first six years of life are crucial to human development.
Montessori education is education for life by addressing the needs of the whole human being – spiritual, emotional, social, and intellectual. Physically, children move from concrete hands-on and sensory experiences to abstract levels of interaction. Abstract level interactions focus on mental and emotional needs through learning about the care of self, plants, and animals. Through activities and lessons students discover the interconnections and interdependence of all walks of life.
Here at Grace Montessori in addition to the Montessori Method children learn about God 's amazing creations and Jesus' amazing love for us! Bible stories and praying are the most important part to the start of our day in the classroom.
Our low student ratio helps children develop their full potential.
The Montessori curriculum emphasize work in practical life, language (using phonics for successful reading), Math (using concrete objects), Science, Geography, Gardening, Art, Spanish and most importantly grace and courtesy.
Where children learn to respect God's creations, nature, and animals.
