“The greatest gift I can share with the children is to help them discover the joy of learning.”
JoAnne is from Colorado Springs and graduated from Colorado State University with a BA in Social Work. After receiving her AMS Montessori Primary Teaching Certificate, JoAnne taught for thirteen years in a Primary classroom, seven of them at MSGH. She took a hiatus from teaching and worked in real estate for a number of years before returning, in 2010, to MSGH and her true passion – working with children.
JoAnne is married and has 2 wonderful daughters, one who lives in the Boston area and one in Simsbury. She is also very proud of her 2 wonderful step-daughters and two grandsons.
Any spare time in the summer is spent in her power boat taking in the sights along the CT River and Long Island Sound.
