Christine Pizzey – Teacher – La Casa del Nord – Junior Primary
Christine Pizzey studied in London at the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) where she received her Montessori teacher Diploma for 3 – 6 year olds. She returned to Perth in 1984 and began working in the only Junior Primary classroom at Beehive, La Casa Contenta. In 1986 a second Junior Primary classroom was built and named La Casa del Nord. Christine became this classroom’s teacher for the next 2 years, leaving in 1988 to have her daughter, Hannah, followed by Rachel in 1990. Both girls attended Beehive. In 1994, Christine returned to teach in La Casa del Nord, and continues to find it rewarding and fascinating to observe each child’s whole development.
