Saying Goodbye

Black and white photo of Lisa Nolan as a toddler wearing a coat and pointing her finger

In early 2024 I retired (closed) my Montessori membership website, Montessori for the Earth, moved my lessons here, and rode off into the sunset. (Whether I ride back again is another story!) 

I want to thank the many, many, many members who supported me there since 1999, and later on Ning, from 2013 to 2024! You were a blessing in my life, more than you'll ever know!

What's next for Lisa Nolan? Hmmm, great question! I'm returning to school to get my Veterinary Technician Certificate so I can work in a veterinary office helping sick and injured pets. (I call it from preschool to pets.) At the same time, I will be working one-on-one with special needs children and adults.

Before you go, want to check out my books? They make great gifts! Mom-lit parent humor: Motherhood May Cause Drowsiness and Mom for the Holidays; and my picture book, Backyard Play with Mummy.
