Here are some interesting facts about Mrs. Root…her grandmother owned a Montessori school in Montana and Mrs. Root was given many of her materials to use when she began to teach. What a beautiful gift! Mrs. Corriveau knew she was the perfect teacher for Adobe Montessori from the first phone call, which lasted four hours! Her passion for children and her love of Montessori was evident. And, both of Mrs. Corriveau’s daughters, Mrs. Coleman and Mrs. Gough, were taught by Mrs. Root when she first began teaching at Adobe Montessori in 1989. She has been a part of the Adobe Montessori family for 24 years!
