Welcome to Room 113
Hi! My name is Jean Avecilla. I have been teaching 1st-2nd grade at Armatage Montessori since 2003. I started teaching in the Minneapolis district in 1993. I've taught at a few different schools in the district in grades 1 - 4.
I enjoy teaching with the Montessori philosophy. I love watching children get excited about learning! I really enjoy teaching about life cycles and having the children observe them firsthand with insects (mealworms, caterpillars), birds (incubating eggs), or amphibians (tadpoles).
A little more about myself...
I grew up in central Wisconsin and graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a BA in Italian. I enjoy learning different languages and teaching my students different greetings and other phrases.
I received my Elementary Education certification through the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and my Montessori certification through the College of St. Catherine's in Minneapolis.
