Our Faculty

Odyssey Preschool faculty is dedicated to creating a safe and purposeful environment for their children. Odyssey fosters independence through a child-guided experience in order to build and promote our community. Our faculty members have a range of teaching experience from the beginning years of teaching to over 20 years of experience. The school is led by the director who is a Montessorian with over 30 yrs of teaching experience. All of our classrooms have Montessori certified teachers, in addition to other support staff.

The most important attribute of our staff is — their passion to work with children and make a difference in their lives.
