Faculty & Staff

At SAMS, the faculty are nurturing, caring and professional. The lead teachers hold American Montessori Society (AMS) credentials, are CPR and First Aid trained, and participate in professional development. We care about our children, our staff and each other, which is why the average years the teachers have been at SAMS is 12 years.
