Virtual Event:
Teacher Leader Stories

Are you interested in learning more about what it means to open a community-embedded, micro Montessori school? Do you want to hear directly from current Teacher Leaders what their experiences were like? Teacher Leader Stories is held throughout the school year to create this space. Here are some questions commonly covered during TL Stories events:

  • When did you start dreaming about your school, and why did you partner with Wildflower? What makes your experience and or your school unique? 

  • During your Startup Journey, what was a challenge you faced and overcame?

  • Frequently asked questions such as finding a Teacher Leader partner, identifying your facility, and student recruitment. 

TL Stories Series is currently on break for the summer. Please subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom of our website to stay in the loop for next year. 

Celebrating a Season of Inspiring School Founders! 

Teacher Leader Stories Highlights 

"This is a journey. You will learn about yourself a lot more than you thought you ever would - your limits as well as your breakthroughs." 

Lixue Tu

Wisteria Montessori

Haverhill, MA

"We committed to not chasing families. Your school will connect with those it needs to connect with, and you have to trust that connection."

Sara Gensic 

Alyssum Montessori

Fort Wayne, IN

"Figure out your 'why' and share that with the families in detail. This was very important for us because we had to market our school without yet having a campus. Like-minded families became a part of our community."

Alejandra Tryon

 The Dahlia School of San Francisco

San Francisco, CA

"Thank you so much for hosting this Wildflower Teacher Leader Stories event. I walked away way more knowledgeable, excited, and grateful to meet such grounded Montessorians doing the work. It also gave me a much clearer understanding of the process to making Wildflower schools become reality."
