Hello, I am Jody, and I am pleased to be a part of the Middle School program here at Hawk Meadow Montessori School. I have over 20 years of experience working with children and adolescents in various educational settings. I have taught in special education, as well as Montessori classrooms. I also served as an academic director of three private schools in Pennsylvania, in addition to opening a Montessori high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Although I have spent most of my adult career in Pennsylvania, I was born and raised in New York, and I am happy to return to the beautiful Hudson Valley to be a part of the Hawk Meadow family.
