Lisby is a passionate believer in the core tenets of Montessori philosophy. Born and raised in Venezuela and with over twenty years of experience in the Early Child sector, she holds a BA and Master’s in Early Childhood Education from the UPEL Pedagogy University in Lara, Venezuela. Once she moved to Canada, she decided to continue her studies as an Infant Toddler Teacher and later pursued an Early Childhood Diploma. Meeting the needs of children and bringing out their full potential in a carefully prepared, child-centered environment has been her daily goal in her professional practice. She has over five years of working experience at a Montessori School, where she started as an Infant Toddler guide, working her way to a supervisory position.

As the Program Coordinator and Lecturer for Montessori Teachers College, Lisby seeks to promote a learning environment where adult learners can grow their spirituality, enrich and learn from their peers and interconnect themselves with their previous experiences and their environment.

Lisby is currently learning Italian and would love to tackle numerous Montessori books as to have a better understanding of the language without having to get lost in translation. When Lisby is not busy studying and learning, she loves to travel and discover new places. One of her hobbies consists of watching ice skating competitions.

Lisby believes Montessori education should be an option for everyone. Lisby dreams of taking Montessori to Latin American countries, and by the way, she loves Flamingos!
