Brookview School (MI)
Laurie Stockton-Moreno teaches Elementary I and serves as Middle School Curriculum Supervisor at Brookview Montessori School, in Benton Harbor, Michigan. She has a Master’s degree in Architecture, has 18 years of Montessori experience, both in the classroom and in administration, and has raised three Montessori daughters. Laurie teaches Arithmetic, Geometry, and Arts Infusion at Westminster College’s Institute for Montessori Innovation.
What I enjoy most about teaching at Brookview: The best reward in working with these self-directed and enthusiastic children is when they – in perfect Montessori fashion – flip the traditional flow of teaching on its head and engage me as a peer or a colleague in their own learning exploration. Words such as, “Ms. Laurie, did you know…?” or “Ms. Laurie, you have to see what we made!” are music to my ears.
Interests: My family, ethnic food, books, travel, episodes of “I Love Lucy,” collecting bells, cats that are aloof, gathering information, Montessori conferences, walkable cities, and especially Brookview.
