Renée Lewis-Lockhart

Primary Three Teacher

“What I love about Montessori education is that it looks at the whole child. The growth and development of a child is multi-faceted, and the child benefits when in an environment that accepts that understanding.”

Renee first became involved with Montessori when her oldest son was a student at CREC and she was employed as a Primary Assistant. She often talked about how exciting it was to work with the children every day, and it fostered a drive within her to learn more about the Montessori philosophy. In 2005, Renee received her AMI diploma from The Montessori Training Center of New England and joined the MSGH community that same year as the Primary Three Guide.

In addition to her Montessori certificate, Renee holds a Bachelor of Science with a concentration in Business Management from the University of Hartford. Through our professional development program, Renee completed the SEED diversity training program enabling her to plan and conduct workshops for our staff.

Renee loves spending time with her family. “My family is truly special to me and as my husband and each of our four children entered my life, they brought about significant change which helped me to evolve into the person I am today. When and if I get time to myself, I enjoy reading a great book or going to the movies.”
