Birdie Pruessner, Founder and Director
After serving in an administrative role as a career changer, Birdie had the opportunity to attend 3-6 AMS training through Hope Montessori Educational Institute. Her passion for Montessori education and advocacy for village-based child rearing lead her into teaching teachers and parents about the method in various venues including City Academy, Parkway School District and Missouri Botanical Gardens.
Birdie has over eight years of teaching experience and is licensed as a Highly Qualified teacher in Missouri, certified in Elementary Education: K-6, English Language Arts: 5-9, Early Childhood Education and Family and Consumer Science: B-12. She earned an MBA in 2016 and is completing her last course in an MED (early childhood) program.
Birdie is passionate about peace education, healthy living, yoga and farm life. She is most proud of her twin daughters who were raised in a Montessori home environment and she looks forward to this new adventure.
