Elisabeth holds a degree in Horticulture and Home Economics from New Mexico State University and has attended several Rising Star Workshops at Northeast Montessori Institute. She has been a part of the Oak Meadow community for 13 years, beginning in 2006 as a Children’s House Assistant Teacher. Elisabeth recently assumed an administrative role, managing the front office since 2019. She enjoys working at Oak Meadow because she cherishes the community of parents, students, and colleagues. “Everyday I see the students growing and thriving because the teachers get to know their students and can tailor lessons to the individual learning style of the student.” Outside of Oak Meadow, Elisabeth enjoys riding her bike, hiking, beach combing and playing with her granddaughters. She grew up in southern New Mexico and is the second oldest of seven children. Family is everything to her!
