Head of School's Letter

Welcome to the Head of School's Letter

I believe that communication is vital to the success of every organization. ASM is no exception! I write to our families frequently to inform them on a variety of topics that I consider important. These letters will give you a glimpse of who we are as a school community, what I value as a school leader, and the direction in which ASM is headed.

Congratulations Class of 2020!

May 21, 2020

Graduates in the class of 2020 will be remembered for their vast array of talents, academic successes, compassion and humility. When we think of this class in the future, we will also remember them for their grit, fortitude and perseverance. They have successfully risen to the challenge of learning in a remote environment and completed […]


Virtual Art Show

May 7, 2020

ASM’s Art Show is coming to you on June 1! An annual tradition at ASM, art will be displayed virtually, rather than decking the halls of our school. Not only does the Student Art Show provide students with an opportunity to create and display their own artwork, it helps them develop a greater appreciation for […]


Safety First!

April 30, 2020

By now you may have a loved one that has been affected by COVID-19. Whether it be a relative, friend or mere acquaintance, the virus feels closer to home than it did 6 weeks ago. If you are caring for someone that is ill, can’t visit someone with COVID or sadly, lost someone, my heart […]


Silver Lining

April 16, 2020

Serving the ASM community has been my second most rewarding job. Leading and managing the school remotely is certainly not something I ever expected to do, but responding to any crisis goes along with being a head of school. I am grateful to all of you: parents, students and faculty and staff for your ability to rise […]


Remote Learning for Montessori

April 9, 2020

We, and most of the nation, have had to adopt a remote learning platform as schools have closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Distance learning has been around for quite some time, even dating back to the 1700s. At that time, learning was done by post. The advent of the internet has been a […]


Teamwork in Tumultuous Times

April 2, 2020

ASM’s faculty and staff are experiencing a lot of “firsts.” First time conducting virtual team meetings and on-line classes. First time experiencing what it feels like to do our jobs remotely. And, for the first time, ASM’s faculty and staff gathered last Tuesday virtually for our monthly Faculty and Staff Meeting. I can’t tell you […]


Professional Development: Preparing for the Future

March 26, 2020

Tomorrow, March 6, ASM’s faculty and staff will gather for our scheduled Professional Development Day. Due to the onset of COVID-19 in the United States, we will spend the day planning for potential scenarios that may arise due to the virus. As we are seeing in other countries, school closure is one possible scenario. We […]


Learning for the Sake of Learning

March 26, 2020

It’s hard to believe that we are only on day 9 of living in this new paradigm. Close to one million students in Massachusetts are not in school due to closure from COVID-19. Amidst the disruption, students, faculty and staff at ASM are working in novel ways to achieve continuity in learning. Is it different? […]


Fulfilling our Mission: Innovative Learning in a Dynamic World

March 19, 2020

As you read this letter we are officially on day 4 of a state-wide school shutdown. Many of you have been directed to work at home. We have all been asked to practice social distancing protocols, which we are told is our best defense against the spread of COVID-19. Despite the loneliness we are all […]


Continuity of Learning During School Closing

March 12, 2020

I have made the decision to close school, beginning on Monday March 16 through at least March 27. I am choosing to be proactive, due to the highly communicable nature of COVID-19, to best position our community to remain healthy. I will reassess the situation as it develops and communicate with you regularly. The timing […]
