Maria Montessori emphasized the goal of education, rather than its methods. This goal being “the development of a compete human being, oriented to the environment, and adapted to his or her time, place and culture.” Keeping this goal in mind and the method followed by Maria Montessori our teachers at WFMA focus on the children and observe their needs. We believe that each child develops at his or her own pace based upon their individual interest.
The staff at WFMA is committed to the Montessori Method of teaching and truly believes that this is the best way to enrich and encourage the children to learn and do their personal best. Besides their own individual achievements each of our staff members is certified in CPR and First Aid. Each of them has at least 24 hours of Continuing Education to keep up with the new approaches in discipline and classroom management.
We have a low student:teacher ratios and a close-knit group of educators. This environment along with the relationship of our staff ensures a healthy, happy learning environment for your child.
Our teachers embraces the full development of the child through Monessori education. Learn more about the Montessori learning method.

Director / Owner
2008 found me at a wonderful time in my life. My young family had all grown up and they were each doing what they wanted to do and now it was my turn to realize my “dream”. The foot work had been laid out for this moment all through my life. Working with children was my passion and having a Montessori School to do it in was my dream. And this dream was about to come true in April 2008.
I pursued my Bachelors Degree in Education and followed that with my certification for Montessori Teaching from Association Montessori Internationale, in India. There after I taught in Montessori schools in New Jersey and then in Plano. Both my children started their education in Montessori schools. I was and still am absolutely sold on this way of teaching a child.
What I most like about the Montessori Method is that it is scientific and multi-aged. It gently moves the child from concrete materials to abstraction. It helps the teacher respect individuality and nurture a love of learning while guiding the child towards self-discipline.
When passion and dreams merge into reality one finds true joy – and this is what I have found here at Whispering Farms Montessori Academy.
"“Scientific observation then has established that education is not what the teacher gives; education is a natural process spontaneously carried out by the human individual, and is acquired not by listening to words but by experiences upon the environment.”"
This is the true essence of the Montessori method of teaching. This is my objective: to serve as a guide and mentor to children to help them build confidence by engaging them in fun practical activities, in an environment based on Montessori guidelines and principles.
I have more than 16 yrs of experience co-teaching and teaching children of ages 1-6 yrs. I am a AMS certified teacher (Toddlers/Early Childhood) and take pride in ensuring that I provide a safe, engaging and learning environment for the children.
Though I have earned my Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, I believe my passion lies in being a Guide to young children.
Lead Teacher, Beginner Class - WFMA since 2008
"To assist a child we must provide him with an environment which will enable him to develop freely."
At WFMA, I have worked with all different age groups, from six weeks to six years old; however, I believe I found my niche with the 1-2 year old children in our Beginner class. Working with a variety of age groups has given me special insight into the developmental stages of children and understanding the importance of providing positive guidance and setting limits for them. I enjoy teaching children new words in English and Spanish, and helping them communicate by using these words instead of hands alone. The most important trait we practice everyday in our classroom is “being patient”. I introduce the little ones to our big world and they tell me what they think of it so far! Ms. Kiran calls me the “Child Whisperer”.
I enjoy spending time with my family and love exploring Pintrest to see what I can create. My home is in Anna, Texas and I have been married for 24 years.
