Renee Ibanez is a bilingual Early Childhood primary guide certified by both the Association Montessori International USA and the American Montessori Society. She has worked as a lead teacher since 2007. Born and raised in Mexico City and witnessing grave social injustice from an early age, she grew passionate about equality, which led her to attend Law School pursuing a career in international law. When she relocated to the U.S. in 2003 with her family, she volunteered introducing art appreciation to elementary children in public schools. It was then when she discovered the Montessori method of education and found her calling guiding young children in the primary classroom.
