Meet Ursula Connors
Ursula joined Princeton Montessori School in 2001 and is now a Primary program conference teacher in the Sunflower Room.
What do you love about working with children?
I enjoy their curiosity and love of learning about the world around them. Their enthusiasm is contagious!
What drew you to Montessori?
I was drawn to Montessori when my first son was an infant. The idea that young children had access to a developmentally appropriate environment that they could independently explore was very appealing to me as a parent. I also liked that the children were encouraged to practice communicating respectfully and effectively with others.
What’s one thing you’d like families to know about you?
My sons attended Princeton Montessori School for Toddler, Primary and one for Lower Elementary.
