Carina Gomez has been working in the Montessori community since 2017, first as an assistant teacher and then as a lead teacher, teaching toddlers. Originally from Mexico, Carina’s first language is Spanish, but she has conquered the challenge of learning German and English as well. Carina lived in Germany for 7 years and after working at a company in finance she started working at a school and fell in love with teaching children. Once she came to America, Carina received her Montessori certification and has been working in Montessori schools for nearly 6 years.
Carina enjoys many aspects of the Montessori approach such as the routine it offers children, and teaching children to have respect. Some of her goals for her classroom include working together as a family in the classroom, doing things like walking into the classroom together hand-in-hand, and singing together. Carina is excited to be a part of the Blooming Brains team and to teach children under the Montessori learning approach.
She is married and has a 19-year-old daughter who also speaks many languages like Carina. When Carina isn’t in the classroom you can find her at the pool swimming or outside walking with her family.
