Bio: De-Shaun is a loving mother to an energetic 2 year old boy and Professional Nanny of 18 years. Her love for the Montessori philosophy began when she had the opportunity to work for a family whose children were being reared using the Montessori philosophy. Their maternal grandmother, a retired AMI Montessori Directress, took De-Shaun under her guidance. After De-Shaun gave birth to her son in 2012, she adopted the Montessori parenting and educating approach. Using what she learned from the directress, De-Shaun transformed her family’s entire home into a Montessori environment. Although she works 4 days a week, her off days and evenings are spent planning activities for other families and working with her son. She holds a degree in Early Childhood Education and is working towards Montessori Certification. She has worked with children with learning disabilities and homeschooled children.
