I worked with Shawn as a fellow HOS in a network of charter schools, and she is extremely well versed in all of the areas above. She is AMI trained at the elementary level with years of classroom and school leadership experience. She was able to pivot during the pandemic and became one of the distance learning mentors for the organization, and created an online curriculum that was offered through Trillium Montessori.  I am a seasoned school leader myself, but sill, Shawn has offered me insights and new perspectives that I hadn’t before considered that has added to my own growth and professional development. She’s especially talented in organizing teams to get things done, positive discipline, and mentoring teachers, school leaders, and parents.  She presents very well, and has a wealth of knowledge to offer. I highly recommend her for any kind of teacher or school leader mentor or training position, as this is where she shines.

Shawn Edwards was the best Montessori leader I have worked with in 20 years. Her leadership and skills enable teachers and administrators to push past their comfort zones and become the best they can be.  Shawn’s work ethic is an inspiration to all.
