Anthea Brignoli – Teacher – La Casa della Gioia – Middle Primary
Anthea graduated from Hartley Teacher’s College, SA in 1979, after which she commenced a Montessori Diploma. Relocating to Perth, Anthea worked at the Perth Montessori school for a number of years, completing her AMI Montessori Diploma for 6 – 12 year olds in Bergamo, Italy in 1987/88. After a few years she took a break from teaching to begin a family. When her first child approached the age of three Anthea enrolled her at Beehive Montessori School and when her son followed soon after, she commenced teaching once again in 1996. She has worked in the 3 – 6 and 9 – 12 cycles of education and is currently teaching in a 6 – 9 classroom. She loves this stage of development and the educational aims of this age group. She boasts that Beehive has a leader with astounding vision, harmonious staff and supportive parents.
