Our son was just 2 years old when he first attended Montessori pre-school and Ms. Shriee Srinivas was his very first teacher. She helped him in so many ways in his early days encouraging him in his activities, teaching him patience and courtesy, helping him learn to work in a group setting with other children, and fostering his ability to make friends and meet people. Ms. Shriee was so very patient and kind with him and came up with so many different creative ways to keep him engaged and to develop and foster the children as a group. Her calm and kind demeanor always reassured us and helped assuage our anxiety in those early days. Sean has grown to be a confident and mindful seven year old because of the influence that Ms. Shriee had on him in his first year. I am sure that every child will benefit from her experience and kindness.
