Barbara Blanchette – Lower Elementary Guide
Born and raised in Tulsa, Barbara graduated from Bishop Kelley High School before moving to Colorado to enjoy living in the mountains of Aspen. She attended the University of Colorado in Boulder and graduated in 1985 with a degree in Sociology. While raising her two children, Barbara operated a home daycare in New Hampshire for 10 years before returning to Tulsa in 1998. Ms. Barbara has been teaching at Undercroft since 1999 and received her Montessori lower elementary certification from the Houston Montessori Training Center in 2000. Barbara says she was drawn to the Montessori method because of its peace curriculum and the desire to help children achieve a sense of inner peace.
