Tina Mastroguiseppe


AMI and ECE Certified

I am the owner and administrator of Mountain Montessori Early Learning Centre. I graduated from the Montessori Training Center of B.C. in 1994 with an A.M.I. (Association Montessori International) Montessori diploma as well as a diploma in Early Childhood Education. I have been teaching for over 20 years and still love getting up in the morning and on my way to school to see all the smiling faces of the children! I am dedicated to keeping current with childcare issues through professional development. Since graduating I have attended several conferences and refresher courses, both in Montessori and ECE. I continue learning and growing as a Montessori teacher and am constantly amazed at what I learn, not just through the conferences and courses, but by what the children teach me on a daily basis. I enjoy art, music, dancing, yoga, reading, crafting, and having fun with the children!

Ashley is creative, fun, and enjoys doing arts and crafts with the children. She is quick and efficient with classroom projects. Together we have so much fun with the children, and it is a pleasure to have her on board at Mountain Montessori!
