Leading Princeton Montessori School

Michelle Morrison, Head of School

Princeton Montessori School is led by Michelle Morrison, who is passionate about Montessori education and building collaborative educational communities. She joined the staff in 1990 and has been an elementary and middle school teacher, founder and Director of Middle School, and led professional development and parent education for the school. She is the current Head of Princeton Montessori School and Executive Director of Princeton Center for Teacher Education (PCTE) and serves on the American Montessori Society (AMS) School Accreditation Commission and Secondary Education Task Force.

Over the years, Michelle has been featured in several American Montessori Society videos about Montessori education,  has had articles published in Montessori periodicals and has presented at Montessori conferences.  In addition, she has been a Montessori teacher training instructor at the Secondary I (Middle School) level.  In her spare time, Michelle enjoys the outdoors, reading, and all sorts of strategic games. Michelle enjoys returning home to Colorado when she can for skiing and visiting with family. She has three adult children, one of whom is a Montessori teacher.

Michelle holds four American Montessori Credentials: Elementary I, Elementary II, Secondary I, and Administrator.  She earned a BS in Business Administration from University of Northern Colorado and a Master of Arts in Teaching from College of New Jersey.  She is currently completing a Certificate of Advanced Leadership from Harvard University.

A Montessori education is a gift for a lifetime, as it provides the tools for learning throughout one's adulthood and keeps the joy of learning alive. Educating for the whole child and for the realities of the 21st century are our commitments to children and families. At Princeton Montessori School, we hold ourselves to the highest standard of a Montessori education.
