Ann Winkler Elementary Senior Level Director

This work is vital to the planet as assisting children with the Cosmic plan and task is our responsibility.” I believe this was the work that was set forward by Maria Montessori as described in “To Educate the Human Potential.” Every single day, somewhere, a teacher makes a difference in the life of a child. Teachers must remember this as every thing we do to build a child up is a step toward a more peaceful and harmonious world.

Ann has worked in Montessori education for over forty years. She began the journey when her children enrolled at the Barrie School in Maryland and she became the Registered Nurse there.

Ann has been the director and developer of CGMS Elementary since inception and has been a residential instructor at every residency since 2009.  As the owner of Beach Park School in Tampa, Florida, Ann taught the EL 2 (9-12) level, and continues now as Director of Education at the school. Ann holds a Montessori credential in Primary (3–6) and Elementary (6-12) through AMS.  She has an R.N. degree, a Bachelor of Arts degree, and a Masters in Education.

Ann enjoys making Montessori materials and books in her spare time.
