My training in the Montessori philosophy, means I want to give you guidance (not just advice) to simplify big ideas so you can make small changes, and work through the tough stuff in your home, classroom and school community, and be the best versions of ourselves together.
Working together in-person or online
You are growing great people! I want to help you get your kids more engaged from mealtime to work to play. I will give you real everyday changes you can make, with one-on-one guidance, to help you trust yourself and redefine your relationship with your kids – in a way that works for the whole family. Typically I work with families for 8-weeks.
I help directors of schools better interact with their parent community, their teachers and define boundaries around their time and the work they do. While I help teachers bring more positivity, peace and joy into their classroom. This is how we create the Montessori community we envision for ourselves and our children.
"Having Sandra in our lives, not only as a family coach, but someone we could count on with anything we threw her way, was such an enlightening learning experience. There is nothing quite like it. The time and the effort that she put into our family wasn’t just a ‘per session’ thing nor a ‘one-size fits all’ approach. Sandra really took everything into consideration when planning our sessions and helped us learn through the whole process. She gave us the tools to continue to grow and learn as a family. We are so incredibly grateful to have worked with her. Thank you Miss Sandra!”
"Children don’t come with handbooks when they’re born, or at least we never got one when our boys were born. We had an idea of what kind of parents we wanted to be, but getting there was the tough and confusing part. Sandra didn’t only help us do this, but she helped us improve on our lifestyles as well. Getting more organized with our time and helping us figure out simple solutions that helped us tremendously. Having her outside perspective was invigorating and eye opening.”
KAREN & JAMES, MOM & DAD TO 7 YEAR-OLD AIDEN AND 5 YEAR-OLD ANDRES
“I am very grateful for having Sandra speak to my school community. Her talk on how to make the most of one's preschool investment by understanding child development was just what we needed. Sandra's easy manner, non-judgmental tone, and deep understanding of the struggles toddler parents face encouraged even my most reserved parents to discuss freely their family situations. The mood remained light even when discussing difficult topics because she has a lovely sense of humor. Sandra also conducted the meeting in such a way that I was able to interject helpful specifics from time to time. It was so natural and easy you would have thought that we had co-developed the talk together. The parent community at Sage is now less burdened and more tight-knit having shared such a deep, almost therapeutic, session with Sandra. I highly encourage you to engage Sandra for your school, leadership, or family needs. You will not regret it.”
Zoe Paul, Owner of Sage Montessori School
"Sandra has been a real guide in my business. She has an enthusiasm to help you grow both personally and professionally. Sandra uses the Montessori philosophy, so you can address obstacles that are holding you back today. During sessions, you come up with tools that will help you on a daily basis and in the end, she is simply asking questions, guiding you where you need to go and helping you discover what is already known! As a Montessori educator and new business owner, it has really been an eye-opening and wonderful experience to be working alongside Sandra, most of all because of her personality and love for what she does! If you choose to work with Sandra, you will truly experience an inner strength that will help you change for the better and be more at peace with yourself. Thank you Mrs. Sandra for being such a great support. I know that many Montessorians are going to benefit from the work you do."
