Nozomi Benson

Montessori Teacher - Stars

Nozomi was born and raised in the beautiful coastal countryside of northwestern Japan. She came to the U.S. to attend college, and she graduated from Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville with a Bachelor of Music in flute performance. Nozomi’s first experience with Montessori was here at Montessori Community School in 2006-2007. With the encouragement of the school, Nozomi studied and received her Montessori certification from NAMC in infant-toddler and twos. After moving to Texas in 2007, Nozomi taught Montessori in San Antonio, and later preschool in the Houston area for several years. Texas is good, but she is happy to be back in mountainous Utah after a ten-year absence. Nozomi enjoys playing her flute, hiking and traveling with her husband and son, and cheering on the Utah Jazz. Fun fact about Nozomi: she once performed with her university band at Carnegie Hall in New York.
