Asheville Montessori School

Johanna O'Briant - Administrative Assistant


Johanna O’Briant, Administrative Assistant – “If I’m not outside pushing my son in the hammock, follow the sound of children’s laughter to my kitchen where you might find me baking a gluten-free pie, or working on a craft project with messy hands and a gaggle of happy children nearby. I grew up on a farm in rural NC, and have been fortunate to experience a variety of different educational methods – from traditional public and private schools to more alternative methods like Waldorf, home school, and schools focused on experiential education. From these experiences, I have developed a deep respect for the principles behind Montessori Education. I have a B.S. in Environmental Studies Ecology, and will complete my NC Early Childhood Education Administration certification in December 2011. I love being part of a community that shares in my delight for children, and their everyday discoveries and creations!”
