Lead Teacher

Ms. Kimberly White

Hello, my name is Kimberly White. I am originally from Indiana but currently reside in Katy Texas. I attended Indiana State University studying horticulture. I received my Montessori teaching certificate in 1995 and have been teaching since then. The Montessori philosophy has been an extremely fulfilling experience for me as well as for my class. It is my mission to provide a living and enriching Montessori environment. It is always a pleasure to get to know each child as an individual and to work as a team with his/her parent to help unveil their child’s truest potential. I am looking forward to having you join me in assisting your child discover their greatest mission, the development of themselves. This is my 10th year at Casa and I’m looking forward to many more.

Co- Lead Teacher

Ms. Azuree Dority

My name is Azuree but the children sometimes call me Ms.Zee for short. I have recently completed my primary Montessori training and I am happy to be co-teaching with an experienced and amazing teacher like Ms. Kim this school year. I look forward to working as a team to create the best environment for your child to develop and learn new skills. I enjoy singing and writing songs on my own time and I will often implement music in the classroom to help the children learn or relax and have fun!! I believe children are a gift and deserve the best environment and teacher to guide them. I am honored to take part in helping mold the minds of our future!

Lead teacher

Ms. Nidhi Khurana

My name is Nidhi Khurana and I have been at Casa Dei Bambini for approximately 7 years. I was a toddler teacher at Casa before I transitioned to the Primary environment 3 years ago. I have a Masters in English, Child Development Associate certification and I am an AMS certified educator in Early Childhood from the Gulf Coast Montessori Teacher Education Center. When I am at home, I love to read and spend time with my family and two dogs. I look forward to working together with you as partners in your child’s growth and development.

Lead Teacher

Ms. Namrata Soni

My name is Namrata Soni and I am a part of Casa Dei Bambini since January 2011. I started as an assistant teacher and slowly developed the love for Montessori Method. I realized that children understood the abstract concepts so easily and naturally with the help of beautiful Montessori materials in a well prepared environment. I decided to pursue my certification and got my Early Childhood Credentials from the Houston Montessori Center in 2013. As a result of my training and work experience in a Montessori classroom, I strongly believe that Montessori education provides the most natural way for children to learn and grow as unique individuals. The children become confident, independent and lifelong learners. It is exciting to see the growth each child makes in three years and I can’t wait to be a small part of their journey.

Lead Teacher

Ms. Salimah Noorani

I have always wanted to work in the education field. With these hopes in mind, I received a B.Sc. in Home Economics. I later got involved in the family’s business. Yet my heart remained with the desire to teach young children. I actively participated and volunteered at my children’s school in different capacities. After moving to Houston, I joined Casa Dei Bambini as an assistant teacher and worked my way up to become a primary lead teacher, earning my Early-Childhood credentials from the Houston Montessori Center. Day by day I am constantly learning while studying to become the best teacher I can possibly be. I am passionate about providing each child with the opportunity to extend their horizons; to explore, discover, express themselves, and become independent thinkers and life-long learners while teaching them valuable life lessons that will guide them through their everyday life.

Lead Teacher

Ms. Sulakshana Shounak

My name is Ms. Sulakshana Shounak. I have been working with Casa Dei Bambini for past 2
years. I have a Master’s degree in Accounting and also completed my teacher certification from
American Montessori Society (AMS).
I am fascinated by the Montessori philosophy of “follow the child”, where a child gets an
independence and freedom to learn at his own pace. It nurtures the growth of a child, while
keeping his uniqueness intact. Ms. Priti Solanki will be assisting me in providing positive learning experience to your child.
