MJDSMimiBashakDorona - Our Faculty New

My name is <strong>Mimi Li</strong>. I have been a Montessori teacher for more than twelve years. I was always drawn towards working with young children, as their soulful minds give me so much inspiration about many things in life. I am truly glad to work at MJDS where I have the freedom to develop my potential and the opportunity to work with a team of people who share the same passion for Montessori education.

My name is Bashak Ari and I have been working at MJDS for over 5 years in various positions, from the afterschool program to administrative duties and finally to the Toddler environment after earning my Montessori ECE diploma. I love working at MJDS because I get to see how children learn to explore and discover the world on their own.

My name is Dorona Zierler and I am thrilled to be coming aboard as the new arts instructor for elementary and middle school, and Judaic Studies/team member of the toddler program. From my early childhood I have nurtured a passion for the arts and a desire to use art and creativity as a tool to help others. These goals have become the guiding force in my life, and my new position at MJDS has given me the opportunity to share what I have learned from my own experiences in alternative and democratic methods of learning. I have seen first-hand the impact that a student involved education can have on the creativity and thought processes of young children, and I am happy to join the MJDS community and pay forward the time and energy donated by my own teachers and mentors. I look forward to sharing our creations and discoveries with you over the coming year!
