Meet our Staff

"I find the entire staff to be caring and warm in a way that we haven't quite experienced before. We are very happy here!"  - AMS parent

Hi my name is Christine Danneman and I'm the director of Amy Montessori School. AMS has a very special place in my heart as I have been part of the school since I was a young girl. My mother (see below) took over the school in 1989 and I have been part of the "woodwork" ever since. When we say Amy Montessori school feels like family.... it is quite literally the case. I attended the University of Minnesota and received a degree in psychology with an emphasis on child and family counseling. I always want to stay current in the early education field therefore I continually take courses and attend seminars to stay informed and current.  I have had the great fortune of working at a job that I love! Please contact us. I look forward to meeting with you and showing all of what Amy Montessori School has to offer.
