Hello, my name is Andrea Artz and I teach Montessori preschool. Before finding St. Margaret of Scotland School, I graduated from my St. Louis schools: Rosati-Kain High School and Fontbonne University. At Fontbonne, I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I accepted the Montessori preschool job at St. Margaret in 2015 and have been here since. After one year at St. Margaret I became trained in Montessori through Hope Montessori Educational Institute in Lake St. Louis.
In addition to working at SMOS, I teach first grade PSR at my parish, and I help to educate young adults and teenagers about adoption by speaking on high school and college campuses. I also love spending time with family and friends, including my rescue dog, Kailee, and guinea pigs Lil’ G, Pumpkin, Bernie and Bella.
