Sophie Lake

Teacher - Suns

Sophie was born and raised in England and moved to Utah in 2008, joining the MCS staff in 2009. Sophie has a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education, which she achieved before moving to Utah. She also completed her Institute for Guided Studies Infant/Toddler certification in 2011. Although the majority of her time has spent working with the lovely Toddlers, Sophie also has had the opportunity to teach in our Elementary program. She loves working with children of all ages, but the Toddlers have her heart. Sophie married her husband Tony in 2011. In 2015, Sophie's son Frankie was born, and joined the Toddler Community at 5 months old. It has been a joy to watch him flourish in the environment. Running is a great hobby of hers and completing her first marathon in 2010 was a huge achievement. Sophie loves working with the Toddlers and Montessori Community School is a huge part of her life. A fun fact about Sophie is that her favorite animal is a moose and by moving to Utah she got to fulfill her dream of seeing one in the wild!
