Michelle Reverri-Courtoy - Substitute Teacher
Michelle received her customized Bachelor of Science degree in “Montessori Education with a Fine Art Emphasis” through Westminster College. She also has both AMS Early Childhood and Lower Elementary credentials. Prior to joining the Elizabeth Academy staff, her tenure as a technical network engineer involved emerging technologies, such as challenging the monopoly of access to the internet, digitizing credit card processing and modernizing processes in the banking industry. Michelle was introduced to the beautiful world of Montessori learning after her oldest daughter became frustrated with the public school system after just a few months of Kindergarten. While homeschooling part time, she realized it takes various viewpoints to truly raise a well-balanced child. Finding the teachings of Maria Montessori, she realized that someone had created a methodology that aligns with her personal philosophy.
Michelle's passions include art, photography, computers, lifelong learning, and personal expression.
