Mrs. Juanita Williams


My name is Mrs. Williams and I am honored to be your child’s teacher.  In my nineteen years of teaching, I have taught third grade for three years, sixth grade for seven years, two years of traditional kindergarten, and this is my seventh year as an Early Childhood Montessori educator.  My teaching philosophy always has been and will continue to be centered on the belief that every child can and will learn.  The materials in our learning environment used in conjunction with the Montessori philosophy, will provide a wonderful foundation of life-long learning for your child socially, emotionally, and academically.  In the early childhood classroom, the goal is to help your child develop order, coordination, concentration, independence, and the development of a love of learning.  This is done through meaningful, hands-on work.  Your child’s learning will be tailored to his or her individual needs, and he or she will learn at the pace that he or she is ready for.  I am looking forward to observing what this year adds to your child’s development!
