Mrs. Misaida Gonzalez
Elementary Montessori Intern
Mrs. Misaida Gonzalez has recently relocated to join Montessori Global from Miami Gardens, where she worked in a Montessori school for over 10 years. She now resides in Palm Coast with her husband and two sons. Over ten years ago she stepped into a Montessori classroom and instantly fell in love with how organized it was and how the teachers never stopped modifying the lessons and material for every child’s needs. All those years have helped her learn from her own experiences by keeping her goals as a teacher. Working with children makes her keep moving forward with her studies, seeing how much she can teach and build in a child’s mind. Today, her goal for the future is to obtain her Montessori education in Special Needs Children. She currently holds her 3-6 Montessori certification and is enrolled in the CGMS Elementary I training. She is teaching in MGRI Elementary class as a Montessori Intern.
