Welcome!

I am Lisa Nolan of Montessori for the Earth


Hi! I am Lisa Nolan of Montessori for the Earth and a trained and certified Montessori teacher. I've taught Montessori in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1986. I started my Confessions of a Montessori Mom blog in 2008! It is now archived, with so much for you to explore!

More about me: I took my Montessori primary training in 1986 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco with the late headmistress, Ursula Thrush. I took my Montessori elementary (6-9) training in 1988 at The Maria Montessori School of the Golden Gate in San Francisco (with the late headmistress Ursula Thrush) through the University Extension, University of California Berkeley. I received an MA from San Francisco State University.

I am also a Montessori podcaster and blogger, a stay-at-home work-at-home mom, and a homeschooler. I guess you can call me a one-mom operation! My son was born with Down syndrome in 2004, and being at home with him, using Montessori education since birth, has been a blessing in disguise!
