Mme Paula Mueller recently relocated and has been living in the Greater Kingston area for 2 years. Her introduction into Montessori began 14 years ago when she joined Brooklin Mill Montessori where she directed the afterschool program and quickly fell in love with the Montessori approach to teaching. Mme Paula completed her Montessori Assistant Certification with the Canadian Montessori Teacher Education Institute and assisted in a Bilingual Casa classroom for 7 years. Her passion for teaching continued to develop as she completed her MACTE accredited Teaching Diploma with the Canadian Montessori Teacher Education Institute and furthered her studies at Durham College in the French as a Second Language (Continuing Education Program). She continues to gain in her joy of teaching through following children in their quest for self-directed education, where they have taught her understanding, patience and tolerance. Since supply teaching and leading the Montessori French Program at Bayside this past year, she is excited to continue that approach while joining the Bayside Montessori team full time.
