Hello! My name is Katherine Puzio, and I am pleased to be your child’s teacher. I now have the privilege of being a part of the Brookfield Academy Schools-Rochester. After spending many years teaching the Montessori pre-primary class, I was excited to expand my role as a toddler teacher. I absolutely love teaching the Montessori method of learning. I could not see myself doing anything else! I received my AMS Montessori Early Childhood Certification at the Michigan/MTEC. I am devoted to the philosophy, with the ability to reach each child and instill a love of learning. I have been a Montessori teacher since 1995. I have been married to my husband Michael for 33 years and I am proud to be the mom of four amazing Montessori adult children. I love to spend time with my family. I enjoyed camping this Summer and learned how to kayak. I love to read and explore Pinterest looking for new arts-n-crafts ideas for school and home. Together with a team of amazing and creative teachers, I am committed to providing your family with a loving and developmentally sound foundation for a lifetime of learning. As Montessorians we know that exploring and playing is a toddler’s most important work, and I will strive to create and maintain an environment where your child can grow and thrive while exploring the world around them. Thank you for sharing your precious children with me!
