Norah O’Brien

Education and Career Background:

  • Bachelor’s degree in English Intensive Writing from Marquette University
  • Masters in Early Childhood Education from DePaul University (Summa Cum Laude)
  • American Montessori Society Certification in EC and EL1
  • Type 04 State Teaching Certificate

Approach to Learning and Teaching:

I look at each child as an individual. I try to recognize the child’s learning style and strengths so I can create an environment that best meets the child’s needs. I truly believe that the Montessori Method is an approach that allows for every child to reach his/her potential.


I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters. Additionally, I relax by doing yoga, running, and reading.
