My name is Liz Parks and I'm so happy to be at Compass Montessori this year! I've just graduated with my teaching credential in traditional education, and I'm in the process of completing my Montessori training at the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. I'm originally from the Nashville area, so I can't help but love country music, long windy roads, and the outdoors! I've always loved working with children, but I'm especially grateful to finally start working in a Montessori environment because of the emphasis on self-respect, care of the earth, and peace in the community. This school year will be a great one, and I'm excited to be a part of it!
