Abbey is a Lancaster County native! After graduating from Millersville University, she moved to South Korea and taught ESL there. Upon returned to Lancaster in 2005, Abbey got married and moved with her husband to Arizona where she became an assistant teacher in a one-room Montessori school. She fell in love with the Montessori classroom, and after moving back to Lancaster in the fall of 2007, gladly accepted a position at MAL while completing her training at Chestnut Hill College.
“Montessori has shaped my thinking and become an integral part of my life, both as a teacher and as a parent,” says Abbey, as a parent whose three children attend MAL. Outside of the classroom, Abbey enjoys family down time and adventures, baking, spending time in the woods, and reading.
