Co-Developers of the Elementary Program:

Age of Montessori was founded by Mary Ellen Maunz in 2011, after decades of Montessori classroom teaching, training teachers, and administering a large school. Certified in Early Childhood and Elementary I and II, Mary Ellen was mentored for more than 20 years by Dr. Elisabeth Caspari, personal friend and student of Maria Montessori, as a trainer of teachers. The legacy lives on!

Irma Rodriguez

Elementary co-developer Irma Rodriguez, lives and works in Victoria, British Columbia. She and Mary Ellen were trained at the International Center for Montessori Studies in Bergamo, Italy in 1974-1975. As lifelong Montessorians who are passionate about Montessori’s Cosmic Plan curriculum, they collaborated to make the highest quality Montessori elementary training available in a powerful, blended course to students throughout the world.
