Primary Spanish Guide
Ms. Michelle Saldivar earned an AMI Primary-Level Degree from the Montessori Institute of San Diego in 2017 and continued her studies in Education Sciences in Tijuana, Mexico. She implemented what she learned at MISD and in her education courses in her Montessori environments at Paolini Montessori and Scripps Montessori School.
Ms. Michelle is a second-generation Montessori Guide. She found herself constantly in her mother’s environment (classroom) from a young age. She remembers observing how every child works differently and how the materials made the children feel independent and part of a community. She also reflects back on her mother’s big smile going to work each day.
Ms. Michelle continues to be amazed by the method and is focused on giving her best to all children. She plans to continue her studies to learn how to best support children with special needs in the future. She has experience guiding children in both the toddler and primary environments.
In her free time, Ms. Michelle enjoys the outdoors like going on long walks, hikes and camping. She is grateful for the company of her loved ones and for getting to learn new things like surfing.
