Riverstone – Toddler
Lead Teacher / Toddler co-ordinator
Ms. Elsa Cortez
Hello I am Elsa Cortez. I have been teaching Montessori for over 19 years. I have been with Casa Dei Bambini for over 10 years. I have been the Lead Toddler Teacher.
I have AMS certification for Toddler.
When I became interested in education it allowed me the opportunity to explore and experiment with children. They invited me into their world with the joy of learning and showed much love for me as a teacher. I will continue to receive adequate training that will allow me to continue the Montessori Method for teaching.
