Goshen Christian Montessori School
Director and Primary Teacher
Tricia found her love of teaching in 1996 when she began teaching dance in downtown Goshen. She started working as an assistant at Michiana Christian Montessori in late 1998, and very soon realized her talent in working with children.
Tricia studied Montessori independently before taking formal training through North American Montessori Training Center while working under Mrs. Asenavage, the AMI certified directress at Michiana Christian Montessori School. In 2000, Tricia became a lead teacher and continued at MCMS for three years.
She began her experience with the Montessori Academy of Goshen in April 2004 and continued until May 2007. She started Goshen Christian Montessori in June of 2007 and has enjoyed serving the people of Goshen with her own school.
Tricia also teaches dance classes for children ages 3-7 through Goshen Parks' Dance in the City program, is on the Pastoral Team with her husband, Jeff, at Thrive: A Church Family, has a black belt in Taekwondo, and loves to read, play games, go for bike rides, and prepare delicious and nutritious things to eat. She especially loves Earl Grey tea, dark chocolate, farm fresh veggies, and artisan bread.
