Ms.Tanja has over 20 years of experience working in pre-school education, primarily in a Montessori environment and holds a Montessori diploma in early childhood education (ages 3-6). Prior to teaching, she worked in marketing, public relations, event management and direct marketing. Nevertheless, through this period she always had her eyes on pursuing a career in early-childhood education. She is passionate about the Montessori teaching philosophy and is always amazed at how much children learn and grow in a Montessori environment.
Ms. Tanja has a teenage daughter and can relate to all the joys and challenges of a child’s development. (The preschool years are the best, she believes!) She enjoys traveling and has lived on three continents, i.e. Africa, Europe and finally America. She enjoys being in nature and taking long walks in our beautiful Bay Area.
