With more than 30 years of teaching Montessori, Ms. Israel has taught hundreds of children who have graduated to further schooling and not only do very well academically, but also become well-rounded community citizens. Ms. Israel has a love for music – a love she shares with her students, incorporating music into daily lessons through rhymes, games and songs.

The families of her students – both current and former, who come and visit often – admire how she instills leadership qualities and a sense of responsibility in her students, and they smile while recalling a favorite music lesson. Ms. Israel deserves an A+ for her dedication and infectious passion for teaching.
