Hello! My name is Amanda Priestley and this is my first year with the Montessori School at Lone Tree community. I am a Vermont native and received a Master of Science Degree in Plant and Soil Science with a focus in Entomology from the University of Vermont.  I spent many years as an Entomologist before changing careers to become a Montessorian.  Prior to joining the MSLT team, I worked in a Montessori Lower Elementary program and Youth Gardening group in Houston, TX followed by two years in a Montessori Primary program in Denver, CO.  I received my Montessori certification through the Montessori Education Center of the Rockies in Boulder.

When not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, exploring the outdoors, gardening, and creating things.
