Toddler Teachers & Staff
Angela Klein (Moon Room Teacher): I joined the CMA community in 2011 as a Lead Teacher in the Lower Elementary after obtaining my Master in Montessori Education from Xavier University; I taught in L.E. for 7 years. In 2018, I took the Lead Teaching position in the Toddler Classroom while completing my training at GCCME. I am a certified Montessori Infant and Toddler Teacher. I love the Montessori Philosophy and have a passion to nurture each child. I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year and reconnecting with previous families as well as new families at CMA. My husband, David and I reside in Lebanon, Ohio. Two of our children are part of the CMA Community, Nathaniel (6) and Bradley (4), they are in the Star Room and hopefully, my youngest, Meredith (1) will join the Toddler Classroom soon. To all the new and returning families of CMA, let’s make this the best year yet!
April Peacock (Moon Room Assistant): Hi! My name is April Peacock. I am thrilled to begin my journey at CMA as the Afternoon Assistant in the Toddler Room. I was introduced to the Montessori Philosophy two years ago (while working as a Toddler Assistant at another Montessori center) and absolutely fell in love with it. I appreciate the independence, confidence, and mastery this philosophy provides us. My education growing up did not include the Montessori Philosophy, and I wish it had! I graduated high school in 2013 and moved on to study parts of Middle Childhood Education, Social Work, and Early Childhood Education at a combination of Wright State University and Ivy Teach Community College. This affirmed my passion for working with little ones; their abundance of emotions and curiosity is heart-warming, thought provoking, challenging, and exciting. I am eager to learn more from the CMA staff, parents, and students this year!
