Heidi joined GMS in the fall of 2010 when she enrolled her children Molly and Thomas in the elementary and primary classes. In true Montessori fashion, Heidi came to us with a variety of skills - fashion design and promotions, outdoor education and facilitation, wilderness medicine, catering, managing commercial kitchens, and event coordination and promotions, just to name a few. Heidi was the Director of Student Nutrition and Wellness and brought a high level of professionalism and organization to the GMS food program. Heidi also took the lead at GMS with health and safety protocols. During the first year of the pandemic, Heidi helped develop the outdoor program that allowed GMS to continue to provide in person learning and essential child care. In July 2021 Heidi stepped into her new role as Head of School and cares deeply about providing and upholding the highest level of Montessori education.
Lauren, originally from Maine, discovered her love for the Southwest during a climbing trip to the Organ Mountains. Lauren’s career path has allowed her the opportunity to work across the country facilitating wilderness trips, educating adjudicated youth, supporting young adults with mental illness, and leading school program enhancement/expansion. She values environmental stewardship and prioritizes adventure in the education of all her students and their families. Lauren is excited to be here and thanks you for allowing her to be a part of your child’s journey!
