Toddler Teachers & Staff

Moon Room

Jena Wyborski
Moon Room Teacher

My name is Jena Wyborski and I am the Toddler Teacher at Central Montessori Academy. Throughout my life I have dedicated a lot of my time to taking care of children and I must say, I honestly enjoy every minute of it. I have over ten years of experience in childcare starting off as a nanny. I have a passion for helping children build independence, creating that love for learning, and embracing every child in their own special way by following the child. I have been an administrative assistant and now teacher here at CMA. I joined the staff in 2018 but have a long history with CMA. I was one of the first students to go through the entire program at CMA, starting as a 3 year old and graduating from the 6th grade in 2002. After CMA I graduated from Clark Montessori High School and then the University of Cincinnati in 2013 with a BS degree in Community & Public Health Education and Promotion.

Growing up in Montessori schools has been one of the best experiences I could have ever asked for because it has helped me to be a more well rounded person in society. The community building and life skills that I learned throughout my educational years set me up for success and for understanding the world around me. I am the youngest daughter of Rene’ Steinkamp, who teaches in the Upper Elementary classroom. I love to play soccer, be active, creative, and listen to all kinds of music. I’m passionate about giving back to the community and to live life to the fullest. I’m very excited about this new opportunity and it feels nice to come ‘home’ to CMA.

Hannah Ward
Assistant Toddler Teacher

Hi friends! My name is Hannah Ward and I work as the Toddler Assistant Teacher here at CMA. I have earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Indiana University, as well as my Child Development Associate Certification from Ashworth College. I will also earn my Montessori Teaching Assistant certification this fall through GCCME. I have previous experience working extensively with infants aged 6 weeks to 18 months, and last school year I worked at CMA as the Pre-Primary Assistant. As a Montessori alumni myself, I know first hand the benefits of a Montessori education. When I am not teaching I enjoy cooking, gardening, running and spending time with my husband, Cole, and our rescued German Shepherd, Wrigley.

Teaching Assistants

Anna Lynne
Assistant Toddler Teacher

My name is Anna Lynne. I am very excited to work in the Toddler Room. I love children and have been working with toddlers for the past seven years in the Montessori Environment. I have my Bachelors Degree from EKU, and my Infant/Toddler Accreditation from GCCME. While I’m not teaching I have four beautiful daughters ages eight, seven, four and two, who keep me very busy. My life is full of pink and sparkles! I love to go on walks outside and be around friends and family. I’m an upbeat, outgoing person who always has a smile on their face. I can’t wait to be a part of the growing process for the CMA toddlers.
