Desert Garden Montessori has been Ms Cindy Eldard’s second home since 2020. She earned her Association Montessori Internationale, Casa de Bambini AMI Diploma in 2018. Her education journey began playing school as a child. She studied in Utah, lived in Peru and speaks fluent Spanish. After the birth of her own children, she began a passion of early literacy. She has worked as a Reading Specialist and teacher the last 22 years. It began in public K-5 schools. Later, she transitioned to the preschool world, then Reggio, Language and Arts until she discovered Montessori in 2015. What a beautiful pedagogy it is, and Maria Montessori had it figured out over 100 years ago. She began at DGM as an online teacher. Adapting to the children’s needs and interests taught her so much and improved her skills in new directions.
