  • Miriam Arnold Lippe
    Early Childhood Montessori Lead Guide

    Miriam Arnold Lippe was not only a Montessori child herself, but also a proud Montessori parent, and has been a Montessori teacher for more than 30 years. She earned her bachelor's degree in Psychology and her AMS Early Childhood Montessori Certification at Xavier University. She also has the AMS Elementary Certification from IAMS. She has taken on many roles in the early childhood environments in addition to Lead Montessori Teacher, including Lead Toddler Guide, Teacher of a parent-child class, Primary Support staff, and Parent Engagement Coordinator. Miriam is looking forward to returning to the classroom full time as the Lead Montessori Guide in our Bluebirds Early Childhood classroom, and will always love to talk about Montessori philosophy with parents. She has two children, who also attended local Montessori schools and are now in high school and college. While at home with her family, Miriam enjoys baking, cooking, and watching her beloved DC sports teams.
