Juniper Room Spring 2024 Student-Led Conferences

For spring conferences, instead of having a parent-teacher model, our classroom will be conducting student-led conferences. This is an opportunity for your child to experience an active and leading role in the meeting. This conference format encourages our Montessori students to take responsibility and ownership of their learning and of setting their future goals. It will be their insights and voice that will drive the discussion allowing for a more transparent conversation. During the hour-long meeting, your child will show you, firsthand, their journals and skills along with demonstrating some of their favorite Montessori works.

Ms. Laura 


I was born in Rome, New York into an Italian immigrant family. I spent my adolescent years in the picturesque countryside outside of Rome, Italy. Teaching has been a family passion that my late husband, Tom, and I embraced upon the arrival of our two wonderful sons, Michael and Patrick. Proud parents of two Eagle Scouts, we believed from the get-go in providing our sons with the skills and opportunities to discover, explore, and learn with joy, love, and passion.
