As the owner and teacher of Gift of Grace Montessori, I would like to extend a warm-hearted welcome. I am delighted that you are considering becoming a part of a community of families and friends at Gift of Grace. I am a wife, a mother of two teenage boys, a passionate educator, and follower of Jesus Christ. It has been a dream of mine to open a small, Montessori-inspired hybrid school with the vision of helping children live every moment with love, grace and gratitude.
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood specialization from Western Michigan University. I also hold a diploma from an internationally recognized Montessori teacher training program. I have over 20 years of teaching experience in both public elementary and private school settings.
I believe the right school has many benefits. It is comprehensive, academically robust. flexible, experiential, balanced, wholesome, beautiful.
A school that is comfortable and inviting as a home, a peaceful atmosphere of calm, order, and joy where multi-ages learn together.
A school where learning differences, learning styles, strengths, weaknesses, and fundamental child development are honored.
Most importantly, a school that honors these educational value...leadership skills, mentorships, teamwork, diversity, compromise, cooperation, and adaptivity.
Please explore the website and feel free to call or send an email if you would like additional information.
In Christ's Love, Stacey Eley
