Kerri Dates – Toddler Class Head Teacher

Kerri is the Head Teacher in one of our toddler classrooms. She grew up in Mechanicville and made her way back to the area after living in Syracuse, North Carolina, and Massachusetts.  Kerri graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and spent a semester traveling abroad in Australia.  She worked at Cisco Systems for 15 years as a Systems Engineer and Project Manager.  In 2013, she found Malta Montessori and sent all three of her boys there.  She was offered a position as a Toddler Assistant Teacher in 2018 and fell in love with it!  She obtained her AMS Montessori Infant and Toddler certification from the Northeast Montessori Institute. She believes in and lives positive parenting and loves the Montessori philosophy.  Outside of the classroom, Kerri is passionate about traveling, being active outdoors (camping/hiking/swimming/exploring), reading, and spending time with her family who keep her very busy!
