Faculty and Staff

Springs East Philosophy: "Every child has 'special talents' and it is the school's and teacher's responsibility to cultivate and help the child utilize those talents."

All teachers are Montessori certified prior to employment

at Springs East, and assistant teachers are required to

complete Montessori training prior to employment,

to familiarize each with the concepts and techniques

used in this school.

All educators complete continuing education classes

annually in areas including child development, learning disabilities, and curriculum development. Teachers continue to update their skills to improve their
teaching effectiveness.
