TMA Connections Run Deep
Do you remember your senior year of high school, a year filled with celebratory events, decisions about college, and a range of emotions? Did you take time to reconnect with your friends from your elementary school years? I certainly didn’t, but graduating seniors who attended TMA did over winter break. One of the graduates decided to host an “alumni” event in her home and all but a couple of the former students attended.
Five of those who attended are children of current TMA Board members, Pule Calderon and Kim White, and TMA staff members, Robin Dotson, Letty Marquez, and Jennifer Williams. Interesting comments shared with these parents included, "the alums all immediately clicked again,” many were planning to major in “ologies,” one person is pursuing musical theater, and everyone else is majoring in a STEM-related field.
Connection among TMA alums and their families has been an ongoing and recurring theme during my tenure at TMA and one I’ve also experienced with my personal children. I view it as a great return on investment of the gift of a Montessori education that we are giving “our” children and hope you do as well.
