Middle School Director
B.A. (Mathematics/Education), University of Rhode Island; Certificate (Teaching Certification 8 - 12 Mathematics) Maria comes to us from the east coast where she taught mathematics at Regional High School in Amherst, Massachusetts. When she isn't in the classroom, Maria enjoys spending time outdoors, specifically hiking and biking. She also enjoys writing short stories, dancing, and painting. She loves working at Northwest School because the students and faculty inspire her to be her best self: "At Northwest, I am a member of a community of life-long learners, pushing me to do the best that I can to make a positive impact on the world. I cannot think of a better place to spend my time."
