The idea was for the children to work alongside an accomplished artist and for the walls of the school to finally have some beautiful art hanging on them in celebration of the school’s tenth anniversary. We accomplished just that.
Sarah Gilleeny is in her 3rd year at HMS as the Upper Elementary Assistant. Last year, she began a two-year AMI training course that brought her three times a week to Hartford, CT. She is the parent of three children, two of whom attend HMS and one of whom was born last year. Oliver joined his mom in both classrooms, at Hollis Montessori and the Montessori Training Center. We asked her how she managed it all and what she learned along the way.
