Dawn Finnegan


Hi!  My name is Dawn Finnegan and I have worked for MSLT since June 2013.  My 1st experience with Montessori was when I came and observed Lori K. in her classroom.  I was hooked!  I fell in love with Montessori and I wanted to be part of it.  Taking a leap of faith, I quit my full time job to work part time at MSLT in the summer program, with no guarantee of a job after the summer.  At the end of summer I was put on the sub list and for 6 months I subbed in various capacities (classroom, office, full day, and the kitchen).  In January I was offered a full time assistant position.  I have always felt and known that MSLT was where I was meant to be.  It just took a leap of faith!

In the summer of 2015 I attended The Montessori Education Center of the Rockies in Boulder. I am now the Lead teacher in the Southeast classroom and my assistants are Martha Buehner and Scarlett Watters. Their commitment to our classroom and your children is beyond compare.  I feel confident that we will have a fabulous school year.

When I am not at MSLT I am spending time with my hubby, Scott.   I love going to Rockies games, supporting our nephew at his lacrosse and baseball games, Skyping with our niece in Washington, reading, going to movies, travelling, and spending time with friends and family.

I am so excited to be at MSLT and to see what the future holds.
