Welcome to Armatage Montessori!

Hi!  My name is Denise Clare.  I have been teaching at Armatage since 2005.  I started teaching in the Minneapolis School District in 1994.  I have taught Kindergarten through 3rd grade in many schools in the district.  I have taught all but two years in Montessori schools.

I love the Montessori Philosophy and teaching kids to become independent learners.  I enjoy teaching kids about the animal kingdom, geography, and how to take care of our Earth.

About me...

I grew up in Hutchinson, Kansas.  I graduated from Kansas State University with a BA in Elementary Education.  I received my Montessori Certification from St. Catherines in Minneapolis.  I received my Masters in Experiential Education from Minnesota State University.
