Welcome to Montessori First and Second!
My name is Veena Black. I am a teacher and a parent at Briar Vista Elementary School. My husband Gabe and I have been living in the Briar Vista community for the last ten years. Both our children, Sydney and Aidan, are Montessori students. Our daughter, Sydney is a Briar Vista alumni and is now a seventh grader at Druid Hills Middle School. Our son Aidan is in fourth grade and is a student in Ms. Renee Carter-Woods's Montessori classroom.
This is my fifteenth year as a teacher. I am certified in elementary education, special education, and gifted education. I am a passionate advocate for children, and believe that all children are gifts. Some open them up later than others. I will teach your child using Montessori materials and methods, along with the common core standards of the state of Georgia. I love to make learning fun for my students, find variety of ways to help your child understand academic content, and challenge them to become independent thinkers and learners.
I look forward to getting to know you and building a relationship with you in order to help your child become an independent thinker and learner. Please always feel free to communicate with me any questions or concerns. You may contact me at the below email address and phone numbers. Here is to a great 2015-2016 school year!!!!!
