I have been involved in Montessori education for 23 years. I have taught at the early childhood and elementary levels and I have also been involved as an administrator in a school.
I now work as a consultant with The Montessori Foundation and I travel to schools helping them with all aspects of running authentic Montessori schools. I do a lot of research on different educational programs and methods of guiding students in meaningful ways.
I have an undergraduate with majors in Speech & Drama and Industrial Psychology and a Masters in Education with an emphasis in Montessori Education.
I'm the Founder and co-creator of Sophia and I love to create new things. I have a deep passion for education and technology, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how they could come together more effectively. I earned my bachelor's degree in U.S. History from the University of Wisconsin and my MBA from the University of Minnesota. I'm also the proud father of three daughters who give me a lot of great feedback on how to improve Sophia. I hope you'll send me your thoughts and ideas about Sophia. You can also feel free to share your thoughts on education, technology, American history (my personal passions are presidential and immigration history), music, songwriting, or baseball. I’d love to hear from you. - Don
