ABOUT

Hi, I'm Ren!

I am a Montessori trained elementary school teacher with a passion for sharing what I know about Montessori math with the world. I have seen first hand how it can bring joy and understanding to this often anxiety inducing topic. When I went through my conventional teacher training program, there was zero mention of Dr. Montessori's revolutionary discoveries. Back when I took my first Montessori workshop as a traditional first grade teacher, I was blown away! I couldn't believe that this information was missing from mainstream education. I created Blocks & Beads to share what I have learned with my fellow public elementary school teachers, homeschool parents, and Montessori guides looking for online resources.
