After staying home for several years to raise her two boys, she taught preschool for two years and then loved teaching toddlers for one year. Her greatest joy in life is spending time with her husband Anthony, and two boys Anthony (12) and Nicholas (9). She also enjoys reading, hiking and skiing.

Arianne Wayman

Assistant Teacher

Arianne has a passion for working with and teaching children that started at a young age. As a child, she often would set up all her dolls and stuffed animals to teach them and read to them. After nannying and teaching for 10 years full time, she has spent the last 7 years in the medical field working with pediatric patients. Although she loved working with doctors and patients, she found herself missing being in the classroom and longing to teach again. She is excited to be joining the family at Montessori Community School along with her two children, who are the twinkle in her eye, Zacheri who is 4 and Zoi who is 1. Arianne is new to the Montessori philosophy and is excited to help children learn using all their senses to truly understand many concepts and lessons. In her free time, Arianne enjoys reading, learning new things, cooking, and spending time with her children.
