Ms. Deepika: Director, Stellar Montessori Academy
My journey as a Montessori educator started about 5 years ago when I wanted to follow my life long passion to work with children. Before travelling the path of an early childhood educator I worked in the field of information technology for about 2 decades. I am very passionate about STEAM. At Stellar Montessori Academy we craft our curriculum to blend Montessori philosophy and STEAM subjects. We also run STEAM camps when during school breaks. I truly believe that being a lifelong learner makes you a better educator. I am always eager to collaborate with educators who are passionate about early childhood education.

Outside of work I love to spend time with family and friends. I live in Redmond with my husband and our two children who keep us very busy! We like traveling, biking, hiking.
Ms. Amrutha: Lead teacher, Inventors Classroom
My journey into the Montessori philosophy began when my two teen daughters (now) attended Montessori school in their younger years. As a parent, I was deeply involved with our children and their education from their preschool years and provided for them the best foundation through Montessori philosophy and learning environment. Since then, I have been advocating for the Montessori approach and philosophy. I am an AMS certified Montessori teacher, and have been working for the last four years at Montessori schools in the area. I have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Computer Science and Information Technology and have been living in Sammamish since 2008 with my family. In my personal time, I enjoy outdoors doing a run in the neighborhood or hiking and our family likes to travel to experience different cultures.
