Montessori is the philosophy that Ms Farida lives and breathes every day, and she has done it for the last 30 years. Ms Farida started working at Solon Montessori in Cleveland Ohio in 1987, where she was trained by Mrs. Gunawardena who in turn had been trained under Dr. Maria Montessori and her son Mario Montessori in India. After Solon her family moved to Sydney, Australia for 6 years where she continued at Hills Montessori in Castle Hill. On their return back to US, they made their home in Birmingham, Alabama where she continued teaching at Joseph Bruno Montessori Academy until they moved to Atlanta in 2008. In Atlanta she have been a lead Pre-primary guide at Highlands Montessori and then a toddler guide at Decatur Montessori. Her Montessori certification is for 2 to 6 year age children which she received from The Michigan Montessori Training Center. In a nutshell, Ms Farida believes that every child has the potential to reach the stars when they are given the time and the guidance to be their unique self.
