Masuma – Montessori Teacher
Montessori International Diploma Level -4
Masuma – Montessori Teacher

Having my experience spread over three continents, I have worked in the Early Years since 2000. I am a qualified international diploma holder in Montessori Pedagogy and have been working in management since 2011. It was my curiosity of understanding how children’s learning led me to pursue a career, and as a mother, I appreciate the influence we adults have on the ‘Absorbent minds’.

I am able to speak seven languages. I cherish diversity and admire how different communities come together to work towards making this miracle of life achieve its full potential. I have always enjoyed working in partnership with parents to build a strong rapport of mutual respect and understanding. In my spare time, I enjoy making personalised quilts and reading books.
