Staff, Faculty, and Board

The essence of Bay Farm Montessori Academy is embodied in the shared ideals and goals of the many individuals who work and volunteer at the school. We have been fortunate to attract a gifted team of certified Montessori teachers and staff who are the heart of our loving, child-centered school environment, as well as draw upon the multi-faceted talents of our parent volunteers.
